The nominees for the 38th Gawad Urian Awards have recently been announced. The nominees include Ilonggo Lav Diaz for the Best Director award for his work in "Mula sa Kung Ano Ang Noon", and fellow Ilonggo Tara Illenberger nominated for Best Editing for "The Janitor".

The films "Bwaya" which received ten nominations, "Dementia" which received three nominations, and "M: Mother’s Maiden Name" which received one nomination, were recently screened at the FDCP Iloilo Cinematheque.  Gaining the most number of nominations, Lav Diaz's "Mula sa Kung Ano Ang Noon", Giancarlo Abrahan's "Dagitab", and Jun Lana's "Barber's Tales" all had eleven nominations to various awards. The movies nominated for Best Picture include: "Barber’s Tale", "Bwaya", "Dagitab", and "Mula sa Kung Ano Ang Noon". The 38th Gawad Urian Awards will be held on June 16.
