Get Reel Mobile Shorts Film Festival 2019 Winners - Full List

Get Reel Mobile Shorts Film Festival 2019, a film festival presented by McJim Classic Leather, has chosen the winners from among seven incredibly inspiring, heart-rending, and relatable mobile shorts entries shot solely with smartphones. The use of a device that almost all Filipinos have access to levelled the playing field for aspiring filmmakers who were asked to share their stories depicting the modern Filipino gentleman and the values he holds dear.

Get Reel is understandably proud to have provided an avenue for such filmmakers who rose to the challenge and turned out truly remarkable and impressive works. The following winners were announced in an awards ceremony held last August 30 at Cinema 1, Fisher Mall.

Among scores of creative entries, seven films were chosen as finalists with Dylan Ray Talon’s Walang Hanggang Ligaya Sa Una Mong Ngiti and James Edward Golla’s May Love Life Na Si Pepito Jr. bagging most of the coveted awards.

Talon’s Walang Hanggang Ligaya Sa Una Mong Ngiti won the grand prize for the festival, the McJim Prize for Best Mobile Short Film, winning P50,000.

The said film also bagged Best Director for Dylan Ray Talon, worth P25,000, and Best in Cinematography, worth P10,000.

Meanwhile, May Love Life Na Si Pepito Jr. by Golla won Best Screenplay and Best Comedy, with prizes worth P20,000 and P25,00 respectively.

Mark Jason Sucgang’s Pitaka won P25,000 for the Get Reel Viral Shorts Award; John Carlo Balasbas Tarobal’s Champion won P10,000 for Best Inspirational Story; and Roy Robert Rusiana’s Kabilin bagged P25,000 for Best Drama.

The judges also gave acting citations to actors and actresses in the film for their noteworthy performances.

McJim Classic Leather presented this cutting-edge event to give aspiring filmmakers a chance to share their content with a massive audience in the digital age where short films have become a way to spread meaningful and timely messages, and mobile devices have become a tool for creating relevant content.

The brand has garnered recognition in international film festivals for viral and unforgettable short films like Bag, Sinturon and Pitaka, which were created and produced in collaboration with award-winning filmmaker Chris Cahilig, Get Reel Mobile Shorts Film festival’s director.

With intent to affirm the uniqueness of Filipino artistry and excellence before a global audience, McJim continues to innovate through efforts such as the Get Reel Mobile Shorts Festival, which showcases the very same values that the brand pursues when creating McJim products.

Closer to home, however, the brand believes that it can prove to Filipinos that local products are of world-class quality and that Filipino values are truly worth emulating.

All film genres were allowed in the mobile shorts film festival, as long as McJim leather products like bags, belts, and wallets were used as organic parts of the narratives.

Winning entries will be uploaded in the official McJim Classic Leather Facebook page.

Cetaphil and Watsons Launch National Healthy Skin Mission

Does your face feel clean but not tight after you wash it?

Does your face feel hydrated and well moisturized? 

Is it free from scales and flakes? Do you use sunscreen to protect your skin from having sun spots?

If you answered yes to all four, then you have healthy skin, the four components of which are eveness, smooth texture, hydration, and normal sensations.

You may have skin that looks beautiful and glowing but it is not necessarily healthy.

Cetaphil, the most prescribed skin care brand by dermatologists in the Philippines recently launched National Healthy Skin Mission, an educational campaign that aims to educate Filipinos on how to achieve healthy skin.


Healthy skin looks and feels smooth. The key word is consistent. It does not have to be as smooth as glass. Consistent skin color is also a sign of good health. Plump skin is also a sign that it is well hydrated. 

"National Healthy Skin Mission is an effort initiated by Cetaphil in partnership with Watsons. As Cetaphil’s brand purpose is to improve lives of Filipino’s through healthy skin. It is consistent with Galderma's commitment to promoting healthy skin as part of a healthy lifestyle. To be completely healthy, you also need healthy skin," said Cetaphil Brand Manager, Francesca Sy 

"We are very happy to be partnering with Galderma and Cetaphil for National Healthy Skin Mission. At Watsons, we believe that you can look good, feel great by being healthy inside and out," said Watson’s Category Manager, Aimee Pernia 

As part of the National Healthy Skin Mission, Cetaphil imparts that there are different skin types. A complicated skin care routine is not the key to healthy skin. What is important is to come up with a skin care routine that is geared toward your skin type and skin issues.

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is the most iconic product of Cetaphil. It is fragrance-free, has a pH level of 5.5 and is even gentler than water. It is the gentlest cleanser you can use on your skin, whatever your skin type and concern.

The Cetaphil routine is simple but effective and includes three steps: Cleanse, Moisturize and Protect.


Cetaphil is launching a roadshow to different parts of the Philippines so Filipinos could try out the products for themselves. Visit Cetaphil Healthy Skin Mission activations in SM Makati, SM Megamall, SM North EDSA and SM Lanang Premier on August 16-18, 2019 and in SM San Lazaro, SM Mall of Asia, and SM Fairview on August 30-September 1, 2019.

Viva International Pictures Brings “Angel Has Fallen” in PH Cinemas; Now Showing Nationwide

He had been down a few times, but nothing could ever take him out.  That's Gerard Butler as Secret Service Agent Mike Banning in the global box office hits "Olympus Has Fallen" (2013) and "London Has Fallen" (2016).  
This year, this agent who is referred to as "the President's top guardian angel"  is going to get beat up yet again, the question is, how will Butler's Banning rise from this fall?  
Angel Has Fallen is the third entry to the "Fallen" franchise. Mike Banning is selected by U.S. President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman) to be the director of the Secret Service.  But before he could assume his new appointment, Banning finds himself in a crucial position to protect the president as they are attacked by explosive drones.  
The next thing he knows, he is already in the hospital, handcuffed and being charged with the attempted murder of President Trumbull. FBI Agent Thompson (Jada Pinkett-Smith) is convinced of Banning's culpability because he is the only one in his team who survives the tragedy.  
Hellbent on proving his innocence and bringing the real culprit to justice, Banning escapes capture.  As the FBI and his own agency are hot on his trail, Banning tracks down his father (Nick Nolte) to get his help.  
Just like in all his previous battles, he must keep his family from harm, keep the president alive, and save the country from imminent danger.  The big difference is, he is also fighting for his life.  
Directed by Ric Roman Waugh (Snitch, Shot Caller), "Angel Has Fallen" offers non-stop action while taking the audience to what Butler describes as a "much deeper, darker journey"  of Mike Banning.  Reports have it that two other scripts had been scrapped in favor of this story, which is said to have been inspired by The FugitiveThe Bourne Identity, and Taken.  
Butler said in an interview back in 2017, *I couldn't even see a way to make a third (Fallen film), you know we'd joke about it 'What, Tokyo? Hong Kong? What is it going to be!?' …Until this idea came along and until Ric came along – now I've gone from not knowing what to do with it, to thinking this is going to be the best one."
In the same interview, Butler shared that Waugh told him that he wanted to make a movie with him "that'll be remembered for three generations".  In response to that, Butler said, "Well what about Has Fallen 3?", and Waugh said, "That's not what I was thinking!"  Butler said to the reluctant director, 'Read this script, it's kind of like The Fugitive, take it and let's put your spin on it'.  
Fast forward to May 2019, Waugh posted the trailer of "Angel Has Fallen" on Twitter and wrote, "For years Gerard Butler and I have been wanting to collaborate. Damn glad it was this one. It was definitely worth the wait!"  
"Angel Has Fallen" opens in Philippine cinemas nationwide on August 21, 2019.  From Viva International Pictures and MVP Entertainment.

ABS-CBN Remembers Gina Lopez in the “Genuine Love” Documentary this Sunday at 1045am and 9pm


ABS-CBN shares the amazing and inspiring life story of well-loved environmentalist and philanthropist Gina Lopez in the special documentary "Genuine Love," which airs this Sunday (August 25) at 10:45 am before "ASAP Natin 'To" and at 9 pm after "The Voice Kids."

Produced by ABS-CBN DocuCentral, "Genuine Love" takes us to Gina's younger days and shows how and why she left her family and a life of privilege to search for a deeper life purpose.

After serving as an Ananda Marga missionary for more than 15 years in Africa, she returned to the Philippines and took over ABS-CBN Foundation -- the socio-civic arm of the country's biggest broadcast network that was founded by her father Eugenio "Geny" Lopez Jr. 

In her trailblazing way, Gina spearheaded projects, which included Educational Television (ETV) that produced iconic programs like "Sineskwela" and "Hiraya Manawari;" Bantay Kalikasan that promoted environmental preservation; and Bantay Bata 163, Asia's first rescue hotline for abused children.

Her advocacy against illegal and destructive commercial mining made President Rodrigo Duterte appoint her as an environment secretary.

After her short stint in the government, Gina wasted no time and founded the Investments in Loving Organizations for Village Economies (ILOVE) Foundation, where partner organizations in the government and private sector united to provide financial and technical support to eight deserving groups. She featured the stories of the eight organizations in her show "G Diaries" on ABS-CBN.

Her death last Monday (August 19), crushed the hearts of her many supporters, fellow advocates, and beneficiaries of her projects, who attest to her sincerity and unwavering passion to serve the Filipino people.

As it traces the beginning of Gina's life in public service until her passing, "Genuine Love" will share stories about Gina as told by her family members, friends, and colleagues who attended her wake held in ABS-CBN. It will also show final interview last July 12 with Tina Monzon-Palma.

Watch the inspiring story of the ABS-CBN Foundation, the individuals and communities it has helped, and the woman behind its enduring mission this Sunday (August 25) ) at 10:45 am before "ASAP Natin 'To" and at 9 pm after "The Voice Kids." Watch online on or

Join the nation in remembering her on social media by using the hashtag #MaramingSalamatGinaLopez. For updates, follow @abscbnpr on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram or visit
