Philippine Cinema 2019: Best Film Festivals

For the third year in a row, QCinema has topped our list for Best Local Film Festival.

Both QCinema and Cinemalaya (which placed second) featured outstanding local full-length and short film entries and ran functional websites aside from up-to-date social media announcements. Cinemalaya 2019 also saw a much welcome expansion of its screenings outside Metro Manila and Luzon. QCinema’s edge, however, as in its last few editions, lies in its international lineup, which in 2019 featured acclaimed foreign entries such as Bacurau, Synonyms, and Vitalina Varela, among several others.

Meanwhile, the Metro Manila Film Festival, which has topped this category in 2016, is at seventh place, with only 5 of the 38 poll respondents mentioning it in their top 5.

1 – QCinema 2019 (126 points)

2 Cinemalaya 2019 (108 pts)

3 Cinema One Originals 2019 (90 pts)

4 Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino 2019 (41 pts)

5 Sinag Maynila 2019 (24 pts)

6 Nation in Visions 2019 (10 pts)

7 MMFF 2019 (8 pts)

8 Cinemaralita 2019 (4 pts)

8 Cinema Rehiyon 2019 (4 pts)

9 Never Forget / Active Vista 2019 (2 pts)

9 UPFI Expe Film Festival 2019 (2 pts)
