The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Danilo Lim earlier said that the annual showcase of Filipino movies will continue because they wish for Pinoys to still feel the Christmas season amid the health crisis. This time, they will cater to a much bigger audience as they try to reach Filipinos all over the world by offering the movies via digital screening.

“The film industry continues to grapple with the effects of COVID-19 but it should not dampen the Filipinos’ spirit of watching Filipino movies during the Christmas season. This year, we are bringing the MMFF tradition in every Filipino home not just here in the country but all over the world via digital screening for the first time,” he said.

Lim added that the Parade of Stars and “Gabi ng Parangal,” MMFF traditions, will also be streamed online.
