Watch All the Winners of the First Globe Independent Film Fest Here!

When we think of independent festivals, we instantly think of Cinemalaya or Cinema One Originals. There are many others, of course, but most focus on screening them in cinemas or smaller venues. No one has thought of tapping the social media power of the Philippines. That is, until Globe created the Globe Independent Film Fest (GIFF).

The GIFF is a different kind of film festival. It maximized the online platform to allow amateur filmmakers share quality films and reach a wider audience online. The best part? It’s free for people to watch it whenever, right on their devices.

For its inaugural run, GIFF accepted over 200 entries for Documentary, Experimental, Animation, Webisode, Narrative, and Music Video. It announced the winners on April 6 at the Palace Pool Club in Bonifacio Global City.

And since it’s all online, you can watch the winners for free below!
