Inquirer.net reports that Sheron Dayoc's Halaw (Ways of the Sea), an indie flick from Mindanao, won the top prize in New York's Hell's Kitchen Film Festival.

 

The film, which stars John Arcilla and Maria Isabel Lopez, tells the story of Filipinos who cross the Sulu seas in a makeshift boat to work illegally in Malaysia.

 

The report revealed that Halaw producer Lilit Reyes, who's based in Singapore, relayed the news to Inquirer Entertainment: "We were surprised when we got the e-mail. Wow! To win best picture in New York... we should've been there."

 

Reyes and Dayoc were not able to attend the festival. According to the report, Dayoc "had just moved to Singapore, where he works in Xtreme Productions as program director for TV content and documentaries for the Asian region."
