Enter 'Act One': a destination for Filipino short films

With a hundred years of Philippine cinema behind us and a world of online viewing ahead, Rappler launches Act One, a new section dedicated to Filipino-made short films and educational content for filmmakers.

Starting this week, Rappler will release two new titles every month on our website and YouTube channel, beginning with:
