The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) launched on Thursday, Dec. 14, an auditorium for the annual Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) at the agency’s head office in Pasig City to support the local film industry.

“This is a milestone for the MMFF, a fitting tribute to its almost five-decade success which greatly contributes to Philippine cinema, producing films that have been recognized not just in our country but also internationally,” Artes said.

The MMDA chief said it would serve as a venue for the events being held during the film festival.

“Through the MMFF Auditorium, we aim to honor the invaluable contributions of Filipino filmmakers and recognize the significance of Philippine cinema in the overall cultural developmental effort for the country,” he added.

The 49th MMFF is set to premiere in Philippine theaters on December 25, featuring 10 official film entries.

The annual film festival promotes and strengthens the preservation of Philippine cinema.
