jericho_extra.jpgAs the star of the movie Subject: I Love You, actor Jericho Rosales is eagerly anticipating the film’s Hollywood debut at the Newport Beach Film Festival in Orange County, California, on April 30, reports.  The only Filipino film being shown in a sea of entries from all over the world, Subject: I love You tells the story of the Pinoy who made the infamous “I love you” virus before the start of the new millennium. Jericho hopes that the film will give the country a chance to gain acclaim in the international market.

Subject: I Love You isn’t the first film to attract the interest and respect of foreign audiences, however. While movies like Himala (1982) moved the international scene back in the day, a new crop of filmmakers has been giving the Philippine film industry a huge boost in the past decade, mostly thanks to the boom of independent filmmaking, which introduced cheaper production costs.

Scroll through the gallery below to see some of them. All these films are already award-winning in the Philippines, but did you know they received awards from international critics and award-giving bodies too? Which ones are your favorites? Tell us in a comment.
