A Filipino filmmaker topped the Silver Screen Awards, held in conjunction with the recently concluded Singapore International Film Festival. PR Patindol’s debut film, “Hilom (Still),” won the Youth Jury Prize.

According to the fest’s site, the Filipino short film was commended for “providing a fresh and innovative perspective of Southeast Asia, while seeking to challenge boundaries of themes and filmmaking techniques.”


The film tells the story of twin brothers as they confront questions of identity and sexuality.

Says critic Eliza Poh: “Patindol offers a new way of understanding homosexual love by revealing to us the fine line between brotherly love and romantic love.”


In sum, the film is described as “a celebration of childhood innocence that speaks to each of us in a fresh and personal manner.”—BAYANI SAN DIEGO JR.
