This year’s Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) will push through amid the ongoing pandemic.

MMFF spokesperson Noel Ferrer announced on Instagram that the film entries can be viewed through a partner streaming service in December, which will be announced soon.

“Pinakamalaking balita na magiging ONLINE na ang MMFF sa taong ito at i-aannounce sa susunod na mga araw ang magiging ka-partner na worldwide streaming service ng mga entries (The biggest news is that MMFF will go online this year and the partner worldwide streaming service will be announced in the coming days) ensuring that the biggest, the most popular and the longest running Filipino film festival will be happening everywhere - recreating happy traditions, and experiencing MMFF beyond-the-movies - together with the whole family,” said Ferrer in his post.

Ferrer added that the MMFF executive committee also decided to move the deadline of submission for finished films from Oct. 15 to Nov. 15. Meanwhile, the deadline for finished films based on approved scripts was also moved from Oct. 31 to Nov. 30.

The deadline adjustments will give producers and filmmakers time to polish their works, said Ferrer.

MMFF already announced last July the first four official entries this year. They are “Praybeyt Benjamin 3” starring Vice Ganda; horror-flick “Ang Mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan” with Joshua Garcia; comedy-horror film “The Exorcism of My Sizzums” starring sisters Toni and Alex Gonzaga; and fantasy-adventure “Magikland.”
