The competition, which is open to everyone, promises a big break to aspiring filmmakers- no matter what age above 18. A powerhouse screening committee, which is composed of Nash Aguas, Khalil Ramos, Renee Dominique, Janus del Prado, Ketchup Eusebio, Piolo Pascual, will go through all of the sent entries and will come up with a shortlist that will have only 20. Three lucky winners from the top 20 will get to have Star Magic artists to play the main roles in their 15-minute short films which will also be funded by ABS-CBN. In addition to that, winners will get the chance to be mentored by the country’s top film directors namely, Victor Villanueva, JP Habac, and Mikhail Red, and will also get a cash prize of 50,000 pesos each.
