Cinema One Originals has produced critically-acclaimed, award-winning independent movies such as Confessional, Yanggaw, Rome & Juliet, Imburnal, Altar and Sa North Diversion Road, among many others which move beyond the boundaries of the mainstream and have earned , for Philippine cinema the global attention it deserves through awards from various international film festivals from the likes of Cinemanila International Film Festival, Singapore International Film Festival, Pusan International Film Festivals, New York International Independent Film and Video Festival and 10th Jeonju International Film Festival (IFF) in Korea, among others.

Popular website and film experts’ online haven, has in fact acknowledged Cinema One’s significant contribution to the upturn of the Philippine filmmaking industry which has made a strong comeback. In October 2009, well-known online international film critic Patrick Frater published an article titled “Manilla in it’s Moment”, where he wrote that a major influence in the “current boom” of Philippine filmmaking is ABS-CBN’s Cinema One movie cable channel which shows Filipino classics as well as commerical films from the past.

Since Filipino indie cinema has long been in what is described as a “dark tunnel”, the channel has also been noted to help emerging filmmakers through Cinema One Originals. It has also nurtured talents who have gone on to bigger projects and wider audiences and has contributed to closing the gap between commercial filmmaking and the more adventurous arthouse/indie approach.

Create your dream movie and be part of this year’s Cinema One Originals. Tune in to Cinema One for more details and updates. The Cinema One Originals project is an annual event of Cinema One owned by Creative Programs, Inc (CPI).
