We’re barely a week now for the second year of “Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino,” which is scheduled from August 15-21, 2018.
Last year’s festival proved to be a success, having extended its week-long run thanks to the #ExtendPPP campaign on social media. One takeaway from Year One’s entries was the award-winning “Birdshot” by Mikhail Red, which was later submitted as the Philippines’ official Best Foreign Film entry for 2018’s Oscars.
Below are all the 8 entries for PPP 2018. Which ones are you excited for? Let us know in the comments below!
