The festival spearheaded by PLDT-Smart Foundation, MediaQuest, Studio 5 and Unitel Entertainment opened its doors to interested filmmakers last August 2012 and attracted almost 150 entries from across the country. Due to the overwhelming response, the festival committee faced a grueling task of selecting the eight best entries. The chosen filmmakers received a seed grant of P1.5 million to support their project.
