Sine Halaga 2 Announces Finalists 


At least 20 Filipino values identified through the National Commission for Culture and the Arts Study on Filipino Values were highlighted in the film entries for the 2nd Sine  Halaga Film Festival and & Educational Resources.


Sine Halaga, even at two year’s old, is considered one of 2021’s most successful festivals which according to the Society of Filipino Film Reviewers is the ‘Third Best Film Festival of 2021’ - next to Cinemalaya and QCinema.


Sine Halaga National Festival Director Elvert Bañares said with all these accomplishments in 2021 alone, there is a need to continue planting the seeds for new harvests as Sine Halaga entered the second edition.

From close to 100 film entries coming from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, jurors namely Director Sari Dalena, Professor Skilty Labastilla, Mr. Teddy Co, Prof. Arvin Manuel Villalon, Director Baby Ruth Villarma; Dr. Flaudette Datuin, Director Adjani Arumpac, Dr. Rolando Tolentino, Director Jeffrey Jeturian and Professor Tito Valiente were able to select the top 8 finalists each for Student and Adult categories respectively.

“We have diverse and dynamic entries this year and we are proud of the finalists that our formidable jurors painstakingly deliberated,” Bañares added.
