On the 25th Images Festival 2012, the film won the On Screen Award. The citation of the jury reads: "This is a beautiful and sad work that shows us why cinema remains important. Lav Diaz's Florentina Hubaldo CTE is a portrait of bare life and suffering. The filmmaker frames the bodies of the powerless in a landscape in which they endure by either taking care of or exploiting each other. We admire this work for its storytelling, its compelling visual framing, and it's pacing and duration, which are essential to the meaning of the work." See more
