Empowering aspiring filmmakers to the next level

A grand showcase of the gift and talent of Filipinos will soon be further uncovered throughout the Asia Pacific via the Huawei Film Awards.

As part of the steady movement prompted by last year’s success of the Huawei Mate 30 Series in the Philippines, the Huawei Film Awards is an Asia Pacific festival dedicated to celebrating work shot using any Huawei mobile phone, with the goal of uncovering and supporting the talents of tomorrow. Through the Film Awards and Huawei’s groundbreaking smartphones, filmmakers are empowered to expand their scope and freedom to create breathtaking films.

As a global tech brand known for its innovative approaches, Huawei carries on to develop ways for its consumers to unleash their creative potential. Through the Mate 30 Series, Huawei continues to enable its users across the globe to break free from traditional practices and explore brand new ways of art and expression.

Directors Lyka Gonzalez, Pepe Diokno and Sid Maderazo

As proof of its functionality, distinguished names in the industry graced the audience in a shortfilm viewing event with their beautiful and heartwarming moving pictures.

Producing creative visions into tangible works of art was possible using Huawei’s Mate 30 Pro 40MP Cine Camera which supports a variety of shooting modes.

As effective the Mate 30 Pro is as a tool, the match of talent and genius of renowned directors Pepe Diokno and Sid Maderazo, singer-songwriter Reese Lansangan and filmmaker and humanitarian Lyka Gonzalez complete the picture.

During the event, Diokno expressed his admiration with the Huawei Mate 30 Pro as it was the main device he used when he shot his short film titled “Things.”

“We shot the whole film from morning until night and the battery lasted the whole day. We were shocked that we didn’t have to charge while shooting! Every single frame was shot using the Mate 30 Pro and we didn’t add anything else and the results were just amazing!,” Diokno said.

Meanwhile, Maderazo shared his perspective on evolution of film making saying, “The high end cameras obviously have a lot of advantages with big lenses, but I think we’re going on the right direction. Witnessing and using the phone for me opens a lot of possibilities and seeing the films by Lyka and Pepe, and to think that everything was shot using a gadget that can fit inside your pocket is just mind-blowing! And coming from film, that is something else.”

The Asia Pacific Regional Huawei Film Awards is set to happen this coming March in Thailand where several awards including APAC Best Director (Male or Female), APAC Best Actor (Male or Female), APAC Best Cinematography, and Best Film in the Country Level will be announced.

Brilliant and accomplished filmmakers of this generation Diokno, Carlo Manatad, Martika Escobar and JP Habac, are on the run to bagging these awards with their films titled “Things,” “Tisay,” “Living Things,” “So Long So Long To Everyone.”

Passionate for short films and meaningful stories? Entries for the Asia Pacific Regional Huawei Film Awards will be accepted until February 25.
