The festival is going digital, which means you can watch it on-demand online

The Metro Manila Film Festival is pushing through this year, despite quarantine restrictions of varying degrees around the country.

In a press conference on Tuesday, November 24, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced that the festival would go digital, in partnership with Upstream and GMovies. The festival is co-presented by Philippine telecommunications giant Globe.

The MMDA earlier revealed the first 4 entries for the MMFF in July. However, only one of those movies – Brightlight’s Magikland – remains in the festival. Several of the entries for the December festival were entries for the proposed MMFF Summer edition, which did not push through because of the pandemic.

Since it’s digital – and since the number of theaters available for screenings won’t be an issue – there are more entries this year than in previous years. The MMFF only usually has 8 movies in its lineup.

Here’s the full list entries for 2020:

  • Magikland
  • Coming Home
  • The Missing
  • Tagpuan
  • Isa Pang Bahaghari
  • Suarez the Healing Priest
  • Mang Kepweng
  • Pakboys Takusa
  • The Boy Foretold by the Stars
  • Fan Girl

Users can stream all 10 movies on Upstream via GMovies. – Rappler.com
