This year’s parade had a shorter route compared to previous years and featured smaller floats as well.

This is just one of the changes in the festival this year, which introduced a new Executive Committee and submission guidelines, among other changes.

All 8 MMFF entries – Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank, Die Beautiful, Kabisera, Oro, Saving Sally, Seklusyon, Sunday Beauty Queen, and Vince & Kath & James – will be in theaters on December 25. – Rappler.com
