His films, which emphasize voices that are underrepresented, unheard, and underserved, challenge the conventions of his community. As a scholar, Cristal studied digital filmmaking and then worked at the Cultural Center of the Philippines to supervise the promotion and preservation of more than half a century's worth of archives. FAMAS Awards, the Philippines' oldest awarding body for cinema, nominated one of his works for Best Short Film.
