Philippine Cinema 2018: Best Film Festivals

For the second year running, the Quezon City International Film Festival, popularly known as QCinema, has topped our list for Best Local Film Festival, garnering near-unanimous first place votes from 35 film reviewers. The festival, generously supported by the Quezon City government, curated high-quality local films and world cinema favorites in 2018, and its programming and attention to viewer service are also more audience-friendly than those of the other filmfests.

Meanwhile, the Metro Manila Film Festival, which has topped this category in 2016, is now at the bottom for two years in a row.
