The Metro Manila Film Festival or the MMFF – the biggest, most popular and longest running local film fest pushes through despite the GCQ status in Metro Manila until the end of the year.
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cannot dampen the Filipino Christmas spirit and the MMFF Executive Committee has decided to bring this Holiday tradition to every Filipino home across the globe.
After careful and thorough deliberation on the five proposals for the online streaming partner, the MMDA and the MMFF Execom has engaged the services of UPSTREAM-GLOBE as its partner.
With this partnership, they shall expand the MMFF reach to include the Filipinos abroad who cannot go home for the Holidays but can still have a Filipino Christmas complete by watching MMFF movies.
As MMDA/ MMFF Execom Chair Danilo Lim says, “We enjoin the public to be one with the entertainment industry and the other stakeholders including the MMFF beneficiaries who have been hardly hit by this pandemic to make this online MMFF 2020 a success.”. (With reports from Gina Garcia)
