Since we're communicating a story, it's exciting how people see everything you put out there in the film,' Abello said when the Inquirer asked what he hoped to learn from joining the OAFF
Another Filipino who won at this year's OAFF
is Mikhail Red for his work on "Neomanila," about a teenage orphan recruited by a notorious death squad.
Actress Eugene Domingo, who was appointed as this year's OAFF
jury president, shared, "While all of us on the jury agree that this year the Korean films and the films from The Philippines are the ones that impressed us the most, the hard work all of you filmmakers did made our jobs watching so many movies in such short amount of time a whole lot easier.
As posted on OAFF's official website, the three films will be up against two films each from Hong Kong and Korea, and one film each from Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan and Thailand.
According to a post on its website, OAFF aims to "facilitate human resources development and exchange, to invigorate the Osaka economy, and to increase the city's appeal, through providing opportunities to watch excellent Asian films, supporting filmmaking in Osaka and attracting filmmakers from Asian countries and regions to Osaka."
Regarding facility types, OAFFs
received the most odor complaints with 28% (12/43) of the complaints, followed by nonpermitted facilities with 16% (7/43) of the complaints.
