Pasok sa listahan ng Cannes International Film Festival Short Film Corner ang Filipino short film na Nakaw. Binigyang direction ito ni Noel Escondo na ipinarating ang kanyang kasiyahan sa kanyang social media account na isang malaking karangalan ang mapasama sa listahan na ito ng pinaka prestigious na film festival sa mundo.
"It is every director's dream that his film will be screened in the biggest stage in the world, the Cannes Film Festival. I still couldn't believe that my first short film with Arvin Kadiboy Belarmino will be participating in the Court Metrage. Hoping also that we will be chosen to compete but for now this is more than enough. Good job Patricia Marie Ferrer ibang level na tayo.
“Our film NAKAW will also be competing this week at PeliKultura Film Festival 2017 in UPLB, catch us there."
Ito rin ang mensahe ng fanpage na "Pala Buzz Feed" para sa filmmaker.
"We are proud to share with you the news that our short film ‘NAKAW’ made it to the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2017, Short Film Corner. Congratulations to our Directors, Noel Escondo and Arvin Kadiboy Belarmino, our producer Patricia Marie Ferrer and to the whole team."
Inaasahan na muli tataas ang antas ng kalidad ng Pinoy short films dahil sa bagong karangalan na ito.
