In festivals like the Cinemalaya, 8 out of 10 members of the audience most probably are critics – self-confessed or otherwise. They sit down with their senses on heightened alert, ever watchful of the film’s details, oftentimes enjoying every lapse and mistake yet ever too willing to share in the limelight for its triumph. I wonder if critics ever get to really enjoy a film without having to tear it into pieces for closer scrutiny.

A friend once said that there are only two kinds of films: the bad and the good ones. But oh, if it were only that easy! Anyway, here are the official list of winners for 2007:

Best Film - TRIBU (Full Length)
