Short Film: "The Filipino Steampunk Artists" Documentary Dir: Jospeh Klif Porciuncula and Fritzel Jess Silorio 10 mins Philippines

Feature Film: "Alimuom" Sci Fi Dir: Keith Sicat Producer: Sari Dalena Starring Eppy Quizon, Ina Feleo 83 mins Philippines

Synopsis:

In the future, farming is banned on Earth due to the toxic environment. All agriculture is now done off-world, manned by Outerspace Filipino Workers. The children living under the Mega-Manila Bio Dome no longer know what the vegetables in nursery rhymes look like… but some scientists and farmers resist; the seeds of rebellion are being sown in the barren wastelands of the Philippines.

About the Director:

Keith Sicat is an award-winning independent filmmaker and comic book creator that has screened his films in local and international film festivals.

Working professionally in documentary television as an editor in New York City to hone his storytelling craft, he branched out to feature length documentaries as well as narrative feature films.

He served as story consult for the first Filipino computer generated animated feature film “RPG: Metanoia” which led to its being picked up for production by Star Cinema and was included in the Metro Manila Film Festival.

His art and writing background was put to good use when he worked as an In-House Director & Head of Development for animation firms Mano Productions and Synergy 88 Studios/ASI Animation, culminating in the first Tagalog language Japanese anime co-production “Barangay 143” with TV Asahi.

Sicat made the social-realist science fiction film based on his comic book OFW: Outerspace Filipino Workers entitled ALIMUOM which won 3rd BEST PICTURE.
