Philippines – Glenn Bairit

For its fresh and innovative storytelling that soars high from the seemingly small space of the narrative to the larger issues of acceptance, friendship, and love, driven by a vision whose complexity lies in its simplicity. It is only apt that in the age of rampant commercialism and unstoppable blockbuster movies, we award the QCinema Asian Next Wave Best Film to the movie with the biggest heart.
