Last year, in Arcade’s first time joining the Kidlat Awards, the production house already had a strong showing after bringing home the Grand Kidlat for Craft, two Golds, one Silver, and 10 Bronzes, finishing a close second to the incumbent Production House of the Year Film Pabrika, which hauled in 16 metals from the show.

A big contributor to Arcade Film Factory’s win was their work for Sanitary Care Products Asia entitled Cheers “Celebrate” which won two Golds for Best Direction and Best Editing, a Silver for Best Cinematography, and a Bronze for Best Production Design.

Cheers “Celebrate” was also the Philippines’ lone winner at the 2022 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity after winning a Bronze Lion for Film. The same work also helped Arcade Film Factory make history as the first Philippine Production Company to win at the London International Awards after winning a Silver for Direction and a Bronze for Production Design within the Production & Post-Production Category.

Arcade Film Factory has been around since 2019. It is a young, hungry, and awesome production company created by directors Jeorge Agcaoili, Richard Ang, Nick Santiago, Mike Talampas, and Marius Talampas, who are not as young but still hungry and awesome. As of 2023, their roster of directors has grown to nine, bringing in Elena Virata, Andrei Julitan a.k.a. Super Bayani, Jaig De Guzman, Jason Max, and Gab Gucci.
