The spotlight is on the Philippines in this year’s Network of Asian Fantastic Films (NAFF), the project market of the Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival (PiFan).

According to the fest’s website, every year a country is selected “to focus on the diversity of its cinema.”

Seven Filipino filmmakers will be participating in the sixth edition of NAFF, which will be held from July 18 to 28 in South Korea. They will present their “genre” projects at the Puchon fest’s “Project Spotlight: The Philippines” in various meetings, pitching sessions and fora.


The seven projects, which have the support of the Film Development Council of the Philippines, are: Tyrone Acierto’s “A Boy Who Roamed the Sky”; Ato Bautista’s “Bad Blood”; Tikoy Aguiluz’s “Dance of Death”; Peter Eduria III’s “Hotline”; Khavn de la Cruz’s “Ruined Heart: Another Love Story About a Criminal and a Whore”; Richard Somes’ “Thy Kingdom Come”; and Rico Maria Ilarde’s “Tusok.”

Participants are competing for cash prizes totaling US$50,000 and three post-production support awards to be announced during the NAFF closing ceremony on July 24. Bayani San Diego Jr.
