The entries are selected based on script submissions

MANILA, Philippines – The Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) announced its first four official entries for its 48th edition.

The entries were selected based on script submissions by a committee headed by chair Boots Anson-Roa Rodrigo and Jesse Ejercito. 

The first four MMFF entries are:

  • Labyu with an Accent starring Coco Martin and Jodi Sta Maria
  • Nanahimik ang Gabi starring Ian Veneracion, Mon Confiado, and Heaven Peralejo
  • Partners in Crime starring Vice Ganda and Ivana Alawi
  • The Teacher starring Joey de Leon and Toni Gonzaga

The four scripts were chosen based on the following criteria: artistic excellence (40%), commercial appeal (40%), Filipino cultural sensibility (10%), and global appeal (10%).

Four more films will be chosen to complete the festival’s so-called “magic eight.” The last four films will be selected from finished film submissions.

The MMFF is set to run in December 2022. – Rappler.com
