For those who aren’t in the know yet, Cinema One Originals Digital Film Festival is an annual independent film festival produced by the ABS-CBN-owned cable channel, Cinema One. To date, the festival has produced international award-winning films like Jerrold Tarog’s “Confessional” (2007), Sherad Anthony Sanchez’s “Imburnal” (2008) and Antoinette Jadaone’s “Six Degrees of Separation from Lilia Cuntapay” (2011).

The ninth edition of the festival is the second year that it will be featuring films in two categories—Plus for films given a P2M grant and Currents for those given P1M. To give you a taste of what’s to come, here are 8 (randomly chosen) trailers from the festival’s roster of 15.
