MMFF 2021 Entries Metro Manila Film Festival 2021 Movies Trailers

It's Christmas season! And it's Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) season again!

On November 12, 2021, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced the 8 official entries for this year's Metro Manila Film Festival. Unlike last year, this year's festival aims to return to physical theaters as the pandemic restrictions has been gradually eased by the government. But I also hope these movies will also be available via paid online streaming.

The 47th MMFF will begin on Christmas Day and will run until January 7, 2022.

MMDA and MMFF Chair Benhur Abalos, Jr. said, “It has been our desire for our theater partners to bounce back to business once again, and we are helping them build the confidence in the movie audiences and encourage them to go back to watching films where they should be enjoyed to the fullest – the cinemas. Thus, this year’s MMFF will be back in the cinemas where they initially and rightfully belong.”

From the nineteen (19) finished film submissions from various production companies, the esteemed members of the Selection Committee headed by the multi-awarded and much respected leader of the film industry, Ms. Boots Anson Roa-Rodrigo, chose the Top 8 based on the following criteria:
  • Artistic Excellence – 40%;
  • Commercial Appeal – 40%;
  • Filipino Cultural Sensibility – 10% and
  • Global Appeal – 10%.
