Whether it be falling in or out of love, Filipinos have the penchant for hugot lines and stories—the more emotionally-charged and relatable, the more Pinoys are drawn to these.

From the same group that continues to make groundbreaking and award-winning documentaries and programs comes “One Hugot Away” featuring digital love stories set to make hearts flutter beginning March 25.


Produced by GMA Public Affairs, “One Hugot Away” brings to life short film love stories made for digital format but will also be shown on television. The series will be available on GMA Network’s Facebook and YouTube accounts while snippets will also be aired on GMA 7 all throughout the day.

For its first offering, “One Hugot Away” will have Kapuso actors Shaira Diaz and David Licauco banner the story of Ella and Ben entitled “Walang Label”.

Ella and Ben have gotten really close spending time together for the past six months. Ella admits they “enjoy” each other’s company. But it boggles her that While Ben shows they are more than friends, he is not consistent with his actions. What will happen once she confronts Ben about the label of their relationship if there is one?



Snippets of this short film will be seen on TV during commercial gaps of Kapuso Movie Festival, Wowowin, and My Golden Life. Netizens, on the other hand, will be able to catch the two-part story at 7 p.m.

But viewers will have to wait until March 28 during the timeslot of My Golden Life to know what will be the ending of Ella and Ben's story. Netizens on the other hand, can watch the finale on March 29 at 12 noon.

The first “One Hugot Away” short film is written by James Estrada and directed by Zig Dulay. The Clash alumna Muriel Lomadilla sang the theme song entitled “Bakit ‘Di Na Lang Tayo” which was composed by Roxanne Fabian and mixed by Andrea Cullla under GMA Post Music Production.

Go ahead, indulge in your deepest hugot moments. Catch “One Hugot Away” beginning March 25 on GMA Network’s Facebook (www.facebook.com/GMANetwork) and YouTube (www.youtube.com/GMANetwork) accounts and on GMA 7. 03/22/2019 (TV Series Craze)

The Office of the Vice President (OVP) together with the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) and Ayala Foundation have partnered anew for the Istorya ng Pag-asa Film Festival (INPFF). The film festival will give a chance to the top three winning entries to be screened in Ayala cinemas nationwide as part of the winners’ prizes.

The INPFF is a nationwide film competition for original short documentaries that tell the extraordinary stories of ordinary Filipinos. Now on its second year, it encourages Filipino filmmakers to showcase true and inspiring stories of hope.



Vice President Leni Robredo, who presides the panel discussion during the launch, said that they were encouraged to stage the second run of the film fest after receiving so many inspiring entries last year.

“We thought that it was going to be a one-time thing. What happened was beyond our expectations,” she said.

The Vice President shared that the idea behind Istorya ng Pag-Asa started after she attended the “Araw ng Pagbasa, Araw ng Pag-Asa" event held in 2016. She was inspired by the stories of weightlifting champion Hidilyn Diaz and Nanay Lorna Tambawan, a turon vendor, who successfully sent her children to good schools.

“I left the venue very inspired,” the Vice President said.

Istorya ng Pag-Asa initially started as a roving photo gallery. It was only last year that the film festival was launched to celebrate the project’s first anniversary. Out of the 73 entries that the film fest received in its initial run, top 15 films were chosen. The Vice President said that they received so many moving entries that they decided to include more prizes this year, such as the People’s Choice Award.


The winners of last year’s contest Florence Rosini (INP grand winner) and Meg Serranilla (INP third prize winner) joined the Vice President in the panel of interviewees. They both pointed out that one doesn’t need to use sophisticated gadgetry to create a good film. Rosini, a film student from UP, made use of the equipment that her classmates already had, while Serranilla utilized a DLSR camera and some lights.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with the OVP and the FDCP for the second year of the INPFF,” said Ayala Foundation president Ruel Maranan, adding that, “The success of the first INPFF in 2018 showed that there is great interest in stories that offer hope and inspiration for people from all walks of life. For the second year of the festival, we are excited to see young filmmakers share more uplifting stories that will truly make us proud to be Filipinos,” said Ayala Foundation president Ruel Maranan.

Those who are interested in joining this year’s competition can submit a three (3) to five (5) - minute video that features an individual or group whose story is a source of inspiration to their community. This year’s winner for Best Film will take home P80,000, while the 1st and 2nd runners-up will get P50,000 and P30,000, respectively. The deadline for the submission of entries is on March 25, 2019. The top 10 films will be announced on April 30, 2019 and they will be screened during the INPFF Gala Night and awarding ceremony on June 8, 2019. 03/13/2019 (TV Series Craze)

Humans have long been entranced by the idea of mermaids, from the sailors and fishermen of old to modern-day enthusiasts. In 2018, to the delight of fans everywhere, the producers of Siren declared March 29 as International Mermaid Day! Clearly, people remain fascinated by the very idea that they exist but, as with all fairy tales, there is a much darker story that goes farther back.


The age-old story of human-mermaid interaction is retold in Siren, which takes place in a coastal town called Bristol Cove. According to its lore, it was once home to mermaids and strange newcomer named Ryn triggers a series of events. Befriending marine biologist Ben and girlfriend Maddie, Ryn and her brethren turn the sleepy neighbourhood on its head and bring to light jaw-dropping revelations about Ben’s ancestors and the town’s shameful past.

In the second season, tensions flare as the battle between man and sea continues, confirming some of their more sinister aspects:


1. Mermaids are superior in strength and ferocity than humans.

Any creature that lives in the depths of the ocean has to be fierce and strong, or they won’t survive. Predatory instincts and tribal loyalty run strong and wild in mermaids as demonstrated by Ryn and her brethren, so it’s no wonder that some of them look at weaker, tail-less humans with disdain.


2. Mermaids are highly intelligent!

Many people equate savagery with brainless brutality but this doesn’t apply to mermaids. On the contrary, they are highly intelligent and have the ability to observe, reason and conspire, as Ryn’s sister Donna demonstrated when she escaped from captivity in Season 1. Coupled with their strength and ferocity, this is bad news for anyone who stands in their way.


3. Mermaids are haunting, ethereal and alluring

This is one point where popular mythology and modern retellings seem to agree – mermaids are irresistible. Traditionally, the song of the siren drove sailors mad and Ryn has this ability too; it’s a powerful addition to her physical strength.


4. Mermaids are skilled at shape-shifting 

Taking human form is another common theme when it comes to tales about mermaids, and what better way to hide among humans than in plain sight? However, every transformation comes at a painful, sometimes fatal, price. In spite of this anguish, Ryn seemed determined to stay and defend her human friends. But now, with her sister gone and her presence endangering her friends, where will she go?

As more mermaids come onto land, it’s no longer just a fight between human and mermaids – It has become a survival of the fittest within their own kind. Tune in to Siren season 2 mid-season catch up that will bring you up to date on all that’s happening in Bristol Cove from episode one to five on Sunday, March 3, from 3:30PM on Blue Ant Entertainment available on SKYcable channels 53(SD) and 196(HD), SKYdirect channel 35, Destiny Cable channel 53, and Cablelink channel 37. 03/01/2019 (TV Series Craze)
