MANILA, Philippines - The movie "10,000 Hours" bagged most awards in this year's Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF). 

The film by Philippine Film Studios and Viva Entertainment reaped the following:

  • Best picture
  • Best actor (Robin Padilla)
  • Best director (Joyce Bernal)
  • Best supporting actor (Pen Medina)
  • Best cinematography
  • Best original story
  • Best screenplay
  • Best musical score
  • Best editing
  • Best production design
  • FPJ Memorial Award for Excellence
  • Gat Puno Villegas Cultural Award

The film was inspired by what happened to former senator and current rehabilitation czar Panfilo "Ping" Lacson two years go. 

Lacson fled the country after a Manila trial court ordered his arrest in February 2010 on charges of ordering the murders of publicist Salvador “Bubby” Dacer and his driver, Emmanuel Corbito, in 2000.

He returned to the country in March 2011 after the warrant was quashed. The charges against him were subsequently dropped. 

Meanwhile, diamond star Maricel Soriano is MMFF's best actress for the movie "Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy." 

Ryzza Mae Dizon, among the lead stars in the comedy "My Little Bossings," is best child performer, while Aiza Seguerra is best supporting actress for the same film.
