ABS-CBN News — 08.10.2020

MANILA — The 2020 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) is pushing through online, as the film industry continues to grapple with the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

The change was announced Thursday by committee spokesperson Noel Ferrer on Facebook.

According to Ferrer, a “worldwide streaming service” will partner with MMFF to bring this year’s entries to computer and phone screens within and outside the Philippines.

Traditionally, the festival opens on Christmas Day.

Due to challenges to filming amid the pandemic, the MMFF has also moved the deadline of finished film submissions from October 15 to November 15.
