Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, August 23) — Good news for Filipino film lovers!

The Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino (PPP) on Wednesday said that screenings for most of its films will be extended in select theaters nationwide.

The films "100 Tula Para kay Stella" by Jason Paul Laxamana,  "Patay na si Hesus" by Victor Villanueva, and "Bar Boys" by Kip Oebanda will run for a second week as part of the regular play date in several cinemas around the country.

Promos and discounts from the PPP no longer apply to the films in this extended screening, the PPP said.


Eight films from the PPP will also be screened in select SM movie houses from August 23 to 31.

This is part of the Film Development Council of the Philippines' Cine Lokal partnership with SM cinemas, which allots one theater in eight SM malls to FDCP-curated content.

"AWOL" by Enzo Williams, "Birdshot" by Mikhail Red, "Hamog" by Ralston Jover, "Paglipay - Crossing" by Zig Dulay, "Pauwi Na" by Paolo Villaluna, "Salvage Film" by Sherad Anthony Sanchez, "Star Na Si Van Damme Stallone" by Randolph Longjas, and "Triptiko" by Miguel Franco Michelena will show in these SM cinemas:

  • SM Mall of Asia
  • SM Megamall
  • SM North Edsa
  • SM Fairview
  • SM Southmall
  • SM Bacoor
  • SM Iloilo     
  • SM Cebu

Ticket prices for the eight films to be screened until August 31 are at P150 each. Film schedules are available on the Cine Lokal Facebook page


The Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino, organized by the Film Development Council of the Philippines, screened all-Filipino films in over 700 theaters nationwide from August 16 to 22.

"This week has seen a rise in the clamor and thirst for Philippine cinema at a rate that we never thought was possible until we created this exclusive platform for films of our own," the PPP said in its Facebook page.

The film festival grossed ₱149.5 million in a week, said FDCP chairman Liza Diño Seguerra in a Facebook post.
