Featured are the works by independent filmmakers all tackling the effects of the oil spill on the environment and the lives of the people on Guimaras island.

Among the directors behind the acclaimed shorts are Drei Boquiren, Jeck Cogama, Khavn de la Cruz, Wilfred Allen Galila, Rox Lee, Raya Martin, Oscar Nava, Seymour Barros Sanchez, Ann Angala-Shy, Victor Louie Villanueva, JP Carpio, Emman de la Cruz, Kidlat de Guia, Milo Alto Paz, Kidlat Tahimik and Paolo Villaluna.
