6th Cinemalaya Film Festival: ‘Halaw’ Leads 2010 Winners

The 6th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival was concluded July 18, Sunday night, with Sheron Dayoc's entry "Halaw" bagging the Best Film this year.

Halaw centers on an illiterate Badjao, Jahid and his 9-year-old daughter Daying as they illegally cross the border of the Philippines and Malaysia through the southern backdoor. Determined to reunite with his wife, he leaves behind everything they have in Jolo to search for his lost wife in Sabah where an uncertain future awaits him. He meets Hernand, who poses as a war photographer as he is drawn into the world of white slavery across the sea border. The two meet as they board the pump boat to the nearest Island of Sabah .

Aside from winning Best Film in the Full Length category, Halaw also bagged the Best Director Award for Sherwin Dayoc, Best Actor for John Arcilla and Best Editing.

The film Mayohan, on the other hand, also went home with 4 trophies: Best Actress for Lovie Poe, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Musical Score.

In the Directors Showcase category, on the other hand, Mark Meily‘s “Donor” took home the awards for Best Film, Best Actress for Meryll Soriano and Best Actor for Baron Geisler.
