There seems to be a bold move in selecting the eight (8) official entries to the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival. Unlike the previous years, this year’s lineup does not include the mainstream movie franchises that typically dominated the film festival. For instance, this year’s MMFF does not include movies like “Mano Po 7”, “The Super Parental Guardians” (of Vice Ganda and Coco Martin), and “Enteng Kabisote 10 and the Abangers” (of Vic Sotto).
Actually, many even call it an indie MMFF.
In line with this, here are the trailers for the entries on this year’s MMFF.
