Lawrence Ang’s dynamic, playful editing of Apocalypse Child contributed a lot to the film’s overall mood, and it has reaped him accolades, winning QCinema’s lone technical jury citation in 2015 and topping the Pinoy Rebyu poll for Best Editing.

Jerrold Tarog’s and Lawrence Fajardo’s edits to their own films (Heneral Luna and Imbisibol, respectively) also paid off as they were cited runners-up in the category.
