MANILA, Philippines – With the annual Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) comes the MMFF Parade of Stars, and this year, we got to go up a couple of floats and see the view from above.
This year’s parade, which took place on Wednesday, December 23, featured floats from the 8 entries to the festival.
The parade’s route started at Coral Way, Pasay, and ended at the Quirino Grandstand.
Let’s have a look at some of the photos, interviews, and videos we got of the stars at the 2015 MMFF Parade.
My Bebe Love
The most anticipated float that day was the one for My Bebe Love, featuring Alden Richards and Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza, also known as the AlDub tandem.
The streets were packed with AlDub fans that day.
My Bebe Love also stars Ai-Ai delas Alas and Vic Sotto.
Here’s a video of the My Bebe Love float arriving at the Quirino Grandstand.
Beauty and the Bestie
We were able to go up the Beauty and the Bestie float and stand right behind stars Vice Ganda and Coco Martin.
On top of the crowded float, we also managed to grab a quick interview with James Reid and Nadine Lustre. Beauty and the Bestie is JaDine’s first MMFF movie together.
All You Need is Pag-ibig
Up on the All You Need is Pag-ibig float, we said hi to Ian Veneracion, Jodi Sta Maria, Kim Chiu, and Xian Lim.
