Filipino horror movie, ‘Kaarawan’ bags title at 4 th Emirates Short Film Festival

Award-winning, young film director Archie Enriquez’

“Kaarawan” beat other foreign entries and directors at the 4 th Emirates

Short Film Festival, bagging the Best Film and Best Director awards

for his horror flick about a caregiver whose ward passed on as he was

celebrating his birthday while on duty.

“Kaarawan,” (birthday in Filipino) revolves around the life of a

Terrence (Dexter Dalisay), the mischievous caregiver, looking after

an old man (Emil Barcenilla) in a coma and near death.

As the night dragged on and became dull, Terrence, who was

celebrating his birthday, thought of livening up the place and decided

to throw a party. But due to apparent carelessness, the patient passed

away, bringing Terrence and his peers in a peculiar dilemma.

Kaarawan was produced by APE and company, led by Enriquez. The

production is composed of an all-Filipino cast and crew namely

Honey Cocson, Roland Arceo, Brad Aquino, Elisa Yana, Engelbert

Chua and Cristina Ferraris. Other members are Maria Dalma, Yaj

Mesina, Jake Javier, Bimbim Dalma, Zoey Dalma and Zack Dalma.

“I am pleased and humbled to be recognized as a promising Filipino

director in the UAE and to join past recipients who I have long

admired and respected,” Enriquez said.

“I hope this serves as an inspiration for my fellow Filipino overseas

workers to showcase their talents and skills and eventually open doors

in the film industry here and abroad,” he added.

Enriquez has won several awards in the field of film making. In

2015, his “48 hours” film project entitled, “Agent Who?” won three

awards including Audience’s Choice, Best Use of Character and

placed second runner-up at the Dubai International Film Festival. Last

year, his Anibersaryo (Anniversary) got the best actress award for one

of the film’s cast, Honey Cocson. The same film was selected at this

year’s IndieWise convention held on Aug. 25 to 27 at Miami Florida

where over 1,500 filmmakers, artists, and creative geniuses from over

75 countries are expected to be in attendance.

The 4 th Emirates Short Film Festival was held at the Emirates

Headquarters in Dubai on Feb. 17, 2017.
