Philippine Cinema 2017: Best Film Festivals

After just five years of existence, QCinema is now the festival to beat in terms of local and international offerings. It is closely followed by C1 Originals, which last year also featured international festival favorites in its line-up. Interestingly, after topping this category last year following reforms made in the selection of finalists, the MMFF found itself near the bottom after a controversial return to a profit-oriented approach.

1 – QCinema 2017 (87 points)

2 – C1 Originals 2017 (85 points)

3 – Cinemalaya 2017 (69 points)

4 – Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino 2017 (49 points)

5 – Tofarm 2017 (19 points)

6 – MMFF 2017 (10 points)

7 – Sinag Maynila 2017 (6 points)
