42nd Metro Manila Film Festival – Awards Prediction

mmff2016
Divese. MMFF 2016 diversity is shown with the mix of mainstream movies, indie films, a documentary and a liveaction-animated hybrid movie.

Wooh! It’s that time of the year again where the whole family spends days together. Bonding with each other, sharing meals, attending Simbang Gabi`s and watching movies from one of the entries of the yearly event, MMFF or Metro Manila Film Festival.

This year, the organizers mixed it up a bit and chose quality over commercial viability unlike the past iterations of the festival.

On December 29, the awards night would air on television in IBC-13 and . But the question still remains, who wins and who lose?
