Here’s the Short Films to Check Out at BINISAYA 2017

Since 2012, BINISAYA has hosted an annual short film competition. This year, over 60 short films were submitted from participants, who hailed from different parts of the Visayas and Mindanao. 

From the submissions, the committee has selected the top ten short films, with the winner to be announced during the BINISAYA Film Festival in September this year.

With themes that range from family and tradition, to history and entertainment, this lineup is getting us excited for the slew of talent the region is bringing to the local filmmaking industry.
