Xandrino, a former MIFF winner, shares that his life was transformed after he first completed his film titled Laum and through his participation in the 2013 MIFF. “I believe that God entrusted us this talent in making films for a purpose. And that is to do something that brings him joy, to deliver the message that we should all work for a world where every human being, young and old, is treated with dignity and respect, and whose rights are protected. And our role is to bring the message to as many audience as possible,” He shares.
