Edward is a 2019 Filipino independent coming-of-age social drama film directed by Thop Nazareno, and starring former child star, Louise Abuel. It was awarded the coveted Special Jury Prize for its highly absorbing and poignant tale of a boy where he learns lessons on family and friendship, and lessons of love, life, and death. It was also awarded Best Supporting Actress to cast Ella Cruz for her totally winning portrayal of a street smart girl who toughens up but without bitterness amid the oppressive conditions of society, and also got the Best Production Design for its highly cogent melding of the resources of art direction in effectively depicting the cramp wards, decrepit equipment, daily struggles, and life-and-death situations in public hospitals, during the 15th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival held in the Philippines last August 2019.
