MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) is introducing a total makeover and a new name beginning in 2022.
MMFF is an annual film festival held in Metro Manila, and runs from December 25 through the first weekend of January in the following year. During the course of the festival, movie theaters show only films that are approved by its jurors and exclude foreign films.
Past festivals have given the rare opportunity to film production companies to feature so-so films and performers while still breaking box office records. Notably absent were quality films moviegoers have come to expect.
It is because of this that thefestival management has decided to rename it MMTF, or Metro Manila Takilya Festival to further capitalize on the film entries’ box office potential.
We especially congratulate perennial MMFF featured actor Vice Ganda.
