Globe Studios and Epicmedia Productions bagged numerous citations from local and international award-giving bodies for their critically-acclaimed futuristic horror film Midnight in a Perfect World, proving its worth as both an entertainment masterpiece and an artwork.

The provocative, must-see motion picture was nominated for 11 categories in the 44th Gawad Urian and won the Best Sound for Corinne De San Jose. It also brought home 10 top awards from the Filipino Arts & Cinema International (FACINE) 28th Annual Filipino International Cine Festival, including Best Film Gold and Best Direction Gold for Dodo Dayao.

“Despite being one of the favorites of film critics in this country, I believe that Dodo is still criminally underrated. His visions of horror and science fiction are so singular and powerful that he truly ranks among the best in the world. I’m glad that a full year after its release, much like the darkness in this film, Midnight was able to creep into and conquer the consciousness of film lovers around the world,” said Quark Henares, Head of Globe Studios.

One of the longest-running Italian festivals focused on fantasy and horror movies, TOHorror Fantastic Film Festival, gave Midnight in a Perfect World the prestigious title of “Best Film” in the “Feature Films Competition” category, while the Canada-based Fantasia International Film Festival gave it the AQCC Prize- Camera Lucida 2021 Special Mention of the Jury “for its progressive affirmation of a cinematic identity.”

Film director Dodo Dayao said: “They’re not the reason you make things, of course, awards, nominations, all that, but I’d be lying if I said they weren’t flattering. And because we were deprived by the pandemic of a gala, of an after-party, this sort of makes up for it in a way, like a group hug between the team, the cast, the staff, everyone, at the end of the screening. Makes me want to make the next one even more.”

Set in the utopian city of Manila, the movie revolved around four friends who were caught in one of the mysterious blackouts where people disappeared without a trace. Despite believing that the stories are a hoax, they are about to find out what lurks in the strange darkness as they hide in one of the “safe places.”

Critics have described this top-selling film of QCinema International Film Festival 2020 as “one of the best of the year,” “disorienting,” “intense,” and “well put together.” It has a compelling tale, a topnotch production, and a strong cast composed of Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Glaiza de Castro, Anthony Falcon, Dino Pastrano, and Bing Pimentel.

Midnight fulfills the vision of Globe Studios to be the home of films that “come from authentic voices and are crafted by true creators.” Globe Studios is an entertainment production company that has been telling stories through silver screens, black boxes, and handheld devices since 2016. It prides itself on being creator-focused and bold with its content.

The film’s next screening is scheduled from November 12 at the Molins Horror Film Festival in Barcelona, under the Videocrome Section. Fellow Filipinos may also view the film on fdcpchannel.ph where it is available via a subscription for only P99/month or P999/year.
