The Cultural Center of the Philippines recently held a press conference to usher in the finalists to Cinemalaya 2019’s full length category. But one thing I realized as I attended the prestigious independent film festival several years back is that it was a gem for short films too.

I would have to say kudos to Netflix for funding this type of project to give chances for short film writers and directors to get their work out there for wide distribution. Creators Joshua Donen, David Fincher, Jennifer Miller, and Tim Miller did an excellent job running the show. Its exciting to watch these amazing ideas come to life, especially ones that push the envelope and mainstream boundaries. To say that I’m impressed would be an understatement.
