Confessional won the Best Film in the First Features Section of the 10th Osian Festival of Asian and Arab Cinema in New Delhi, India on July 19, 2008.
First Features Section jury head, Roger Garcia with his co-jurors, film-maker Nagesh Kuknoor and Sri-Lankan film-maker and journalist Vimukti Jayasundara were impressed by the film. “That the film impressed these foreign critics was unexpected,” says Ronald Arguelles, Confessional’s executive producer and Cinema One Originals project head. The award also caught its director Jerold Tarog by surprise. “We didn’t think the film’s culture-specific themes would resonate with (audiences from) from other countries But from the wonderful comments we received after the screening, we knew it really connected with the viewers. It’s a great feeling.”
Confessional initially got its string of triumph when it won the Best Picture, Best Director (Jerrold Tarog and Ruel Antipuesto), Best Screenplay (Ramon Ukit), Best Editing (Pats Ranyo), Best Sound and Best-Supporting Actor for Publio Briones III at the 2007 Cinema One Originals Awards Night.
It won Digital Film of the Year, Digital Movie Director of the Year for its tandem directors Jerrold Tarog and Ruel Antipuesto, Digital Movie Editor of the Year for Pats Ranyo, Digital Original Movie Screenplay for Ramon Ukit and Digital Movie Sound Engineer also for Jerrold Tarog at the 24rth PMPC Star Awards for Movies. It follows fledgling documentarian Ryan, who stumbles upon an unexpected subject who will make a stunning mark in his documentary; an ex-politician who confesses his crimes before Ryan’s camera. What follows is a string of unearthed secrets and sweet lies. Thus explains the catchphrase of the movie equation-style: “Lies + Lies = Truth.”
Directors Tarog and Antipuesto both extend their gratitude to Cinema One’s Channel Head Ronald Arguelles for their movie’s triumphs. Arguelles says the recognition of Cinema One Originals’ digital films locally and abroad made the channel’s annual digital movie project and festival a potent venue for young bloods of the new Filipino cinema.
Confessional is a 2007 production of Cinema One Originals annual movie project. The project and the channel are owned by Creative Programs, Inc.
