FAMAS Awards winners

Who are the winners in this year’s FAMAS Awards?

For the first time, an independent jury composed of film practitioners, members of the academe and critics chose the FAMAS winners. This was initiated to regain the credibility of the FAMAS Awards which has declined in recent years. Can the FAMAS still regain its old glory?

This year’s jury is headed by respected and multi-awarded screenwriter, novelist and playwright Ricky Lee.

The full list of winners in the 2018 FAMAS Awards is as follows:
