Sinag Maynila 2017 Gabi ng Parangal held in Samsung Hall, SM Aura Premier was hosted by Cerah Hernandez and Andre Co, with entertainment provided by Ballet Manila Philippines.
Also present were jury members who helped in the deliberation process and whose identities weren’t revealed until that evening. They were: FDCP Chairperson Liza Dino-Seguerra, Filipino film critic Oggs Cruz, and French film critic Max Tessier, who judged the Full Length category, and director Paul Soriano, who judged the Shorts and Documentary finalists. The other two Shorts and Documentary jurors, professor Rolando Tolentino and critic Patrick Flores couldn’t attend the ceremonies.
The attending jurors served as presenters, along with Solar Pictures General Manager Butch Ibanez, Walking Street director and actress Sang Woo Lee and Lee Song Lee, and the director and producer of Sinag Maynila 2016 Best Picture, Mrs., Adolf Alix, Jr. and Lou Gopez, respectively.
A special citation – replete with bouquet – was also awarded to Ms. Millie Dizon, SM Supermalls SVP, for her unwavering support for the festival which is now on its third year.
