The Filipino film industry is not new to the world's most prestigious Cannes International Film Festival. In fact, in 2009, Brillante Mendoza won Best Director or the Prix de la mise en scene citation for his film 'Kinatay' (Butchered) defeating 19 other brilliant filmmakers including Quentin Tarantino who entered the competition via "Inglorious Bastards".
Now, the Philippines showcases three films in the annual film fest, two for Un Certain Regard, a category made especially for films who may not be competing for the top prize Palme d'or but are showcasing "innovation and audacious works". Cannes may present the Best Film Award for Best Film in this category and representing the Philippines are Adolfo Alix Jr's. "Death March" and Lav Diaz's "Norte: Hangganan ng Kasaysayan" (Norte: The End of History).
