MMFF 2017 SETS A NEW RECORD AS THE HIGHEST 1ST & 2ND DAY GROSS This year’s Metro Manila Film Festival broke box-office records as it surpassed the 2015 first and second day gross sales. It also tripled the foot traffic to the theaters from last year. “The big achievement is bringing back our kababayans to the theaters. It took quite some time before we saw this kind of enthusiasm once again from the Filipino viewers,” said MMFF Execom Chair Tim Orbos. From the Parade Of Stars in Muntinlupa to the post Holiday theater tours, people have flocked to the theaters once more to support the all-Filipino film line up that went through gruelling screening from an esteemed Selection Committee headed by no less than National Artist Bienvenido Lumbera. Now that we have the audience and the revenues back on track, we are committed to continue supporting quality productions that would satisfy and enrich our general film audiences. #MMFF2017 #mabuhayangpelikulangpilipino🎬🎥
