Filipina film editor Manet Dayrit has seen how collaboration with filmmakers outside of the Philippines can enrich both the local and Asian movie industries.

Dayrit recalled that during the COVID-19 pandemic, production houses in France, Norway, the Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam joined hands to produce Cu Li Never Cries — a debut feature from Vietnamese filmmaker Pham Ngoc Lan.

The movie, about a Vietnamese widow who inherits her husband's pet pygmy slow loris, won a best first feature award at the 74th Berlin Film Festival last month in Germany.

Co-productions in the film industry offer numerous benefits, Dayrit said in an interview with China Daily ahead of the Asia Content Business Summit (ACBS).
