It is also hailed as the Best Picture while Juday got the Best Actress award. Aside from these major recognition, Allen Dizon, her co-star in the movie also won the Best Actor award.
Despite the recognition and the good reviews that Mindanao received, sad to say, it was only shown in limited cinemas. Apparently, this kind of problem has been happening in the film festival for several years now.
