These are “Deadma Walking” (starring Joross Gamboa/Edgar Allan Guzman), “Siargao” (Jericho Rosales/Erich Gonzales/Jasmine Curtis-Smith), “Haunted Forest” (Jane Oineza/Maris Racal/Jameson Blake/Jon Lucas), and “Ang Larawan” (Joanna Ampil/Rachel Alejandro/Paulo Avelino) picked based on merits of the submitted finished film.
The titles of the first four films were announced a few months ago. These are “All Of You” (Jennylyn Mercado/Derek Ramsay), “Meant To Beh” (Vic Sotto/Dawn Zulueta), “Gandarrapiddo: The Revenger Squad” (Vice Ganda/Daniel Padilla/Pia Wurtzbach), and “Ang Panday” (Coco Martin) chosen based on submitted script.
On its 43rd year, the Metro Manila Film Festival traditionally opens on Dec. 25.
The Parade of Stars is on Dec. 25 while the Gabi ng Parangal is on Dec. 27.
However, this year’s Parade of Stars is sponsored by the City of Muntinlupa where it will be held. (Report by Jojo P. Panaligan)
