DAVAO NGILNGIG FILM OF THE YEAR
“Ngilngig”, or its derivative “ngiga” (from ngilngiga) has been more commonly used (especially among Cebuanos) to refer to something that is “kuyaw” (awesome). But the word originally refers to something that elicits horror or ghastliness, something that alludes to the macabre.
The Best Davao Ngilngig Film shall be given to a film made by Davaoeño filmmakers that best represents the “ngilngig” factor. The award is given by Pasalidahay.
