The MMFF (http://mmda.gov.ph/mmff/ ) is an annual film festival in the
Philippines. It is held during the Christmas Season in recognition of
the role of the film industry in providing artistic depictions of the
Philippines’ stories and history. The MMFF was created to promote and
enhance the preservation, growth and development of the local film
industry and to extend financial support/assistance to the local film
producers and its beneficiaries.* An executive committee headed by the
Chairman of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority supervises the
MMFF. This year, Chairman Francis Tolentino, Chairman of the
Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) continues to head the
Executive Committee of the 39th MMFF. During the festival, no foreign
films are shown in Philippine theaters in order to showcase locally
produced films. The MMFF was established in 1975.
During the formal presentation of the Official Movie Entries for the
2013 MMFF, Chairman Francis Tolentino signed the Memorandum of Agreement
with BDO Philippines, represented by Michael D. Roxas,
