Winners and Finalists (Short Film category) to the 3rd Philippine Graphic Fiction Awards

More photos about this event can be found on Azrael Coladilla's site.

I was fortunate to have been invited to watch the screening of the 10 film finalists in the Short Film category of the 3rd Philippine Graphic Fiction Awards. It was held in U-View theater of Fully Booked bookstore at The Fort, Taguig City on February 23, 2010. 

The screening was sponsored by TGIFriday’s and Bo’s Coffee.

Arch. Jaime Daez, owner of Fully Booked bookstore and Neil Gaiman handed out the awards on March 17, 2010, 7:00PM at the Rockwell Tent in Makati City. Unfortunately, there was no 1st Place Winner being awarded for the Short Film category as no entry met the minimum score for the prize.
