Award and Recognition

2nd Sundayag Film Festival Film Exhibition "Delihensya"

What motivated you to join this year's 3 Shots Film Fest?

When I knew that the platform caters a wide variety of short films for aspiring storytellers like me, I've become more motivated and interested to join this film festival. Also, this is so far the best film festival locally who only accepts a three-shots and three-cuts film. so it is exciting.

Tell us what inspired you to create this film?

As this was inspired by my personal experience, I've always wanted to share this story to remind at least one person to not be hard on themselves and that we all deserve to reward ourselves even in small aspects of life.

Share the challenges you have encountered and the learnings you discovered given the limitations.

Aside from the limited budget and restrictions in production brought about by the pandemic, we learned how challenging it is to direct a young actor for the first time. It is also fulfilling that we were able to transcend our story in just three shots. We want to show through our film those who are going through the same situation that living their lives without no regrets can be worth it.
