The 2021 GIFF will be held from September 17 to 26. 

Starring Charo Santos-Concio, Daniel Padilla, and Rans Rifol, Kun Maupay Man It Panahon follows Norma (Santos-Concio) and her son Miguel (Padilla) as they struggle with a disaster that ravages their whole region. (WATCH: ‘Kun Maupay Man It Panahon’ remembers the aftermath of Yolanda)

It is directed by Carlo Francis Manatad and written by Manatad, Giancarlo Abrahan, and Jérémie Dubois.

It was the lone Philippine entry selected for Concorso Cineasti del Presente (Filmmakers of the Present Competition), in which films from emerging directors across the world are featured. 

Kun Maupay Man It Panahon is also set to make its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, which will run from September 9 to 18.
