This is Cinemanila.
Welcome. This is Cinemanila.
CINEMANILA has always stood for two things:
the promotion of Filipino films to world cinema audiences and of world cinema to Filipino audiences; and the development of new and independent Filipino filmmakers. The central features of the festival are Philippine cinema and Southeast Asian Cinema, or SEA Cinema.
The direction and framework of the festival have provided the focus for its programs to provide to the world a window on Philippine cinema in particular and Southeast Asian cinema in general.
The goals of CINEMANILA are to:
- to nurture young Filipino directors and unearth new talents in the Philippines and Southeast Asia in order for the Philippines to become the hub of Southeast Asian films.
- to create content that will make a major contribution to the development of the bigger picture which is the Asian Content Industry.
- to revitalize the Filipino Film Industry that will become a major player in the development of the Asian Content Industry.
