cinemagis - winners

Congratulations to the winners of Cinemagis 2009 - Northern Mindanao's First Digital Film Festival. Kiss the Rain (Iligan) won Best Film for the Student Category and Kasing-kasing Amang (Cagayan de Oro) for the Senior Category.

Ok, so I'm a part of the steering committee for Cinemagis however, I cant help but admire the students of MSU-IDS for creating beautiful works. Having to watch and scrutinize all 20+ short films in a single night proved to be challenge for those of us involved in the prejudging.

Even the students at the high school were inspired of their work. In the end everyone involved got to learn more from each other and that's what I believe matters most.

Ukit - There is something about the point of view of the film that makes it fresh and appealing to the audience.

Kiss the Rain - I like how something local can look so foreign without having to try very hard.
