INCinema’s Award-winning indie film “Walang Take Two” (No Second Take) directed by award-winning director Carlo Cuevas definitely making some noise. Early this year, the film were recognized from London International Film Festival to Jakarta Film Festival and  bagged the Best Film and Cinematography from Madrid Film Festival. Apart from that, the indie film from the Philippines has come along way, “Walang Take Two” is the official selection for International Film Festival of Manhattan in New York City on October 20, 2016 and chosen as the opening film in Manhattan. In addition, also nominated for “Best Ensemble Acting Award” for feature film.

Cuevas said,” I am so thankful and bless that Walang Take Two won all these awards, I dedicate this award to all the staff and the team” .

“There are no second takes,” is what Hapi, a frustrated film director, always hears from his father Mang Julian, a retired videographer. Together with his best friends, Caloy and Onyok, he searches for potential producers who will finance his movie script. Out of options, they borrow from a known local loan shark named Alfajor, only to be stolen by the mischievous Oblax.

Striving to fulfill his dreams, looking for ways to pay his debt and with a struggling love life on the side, Hapi painfully learns that he has to be careful in his decisions before it is too late, because there are choices one might make in this life that can never be taken back– proving the wisdom behind his father’s ususal quip that sometimes there are no second takes.
