Presa Poster

Having these independent films in the MMFF is a very good way of showing support to independent film makers.  It also provides moviegoers an alternative to pop cinema.

These films feature depth and artistic concepts but still not warmly received and patronized.  Why do you think Pinoy Indie Films normally get more attention and recognition outside the country than here?

  1. indiehan na!!! pero kung isasama to sa mmff, so possible late december na ito ipapalabas.

    • tsaka baka hindi lalo mapansin kasi mainstream ung kalaban.. big budgeted movies.. magkukulang sa promotion kasi star cinema sa dos, ung enteng at agimat, sa gma.. pati channel 5 meron na rin..

  2. well! let’s admit it, minsan sawa na ang tao sa mainstream. pwede naman low budget promotion sa movies, diyan na pwede gamitin ang social media like FB.
