The 41st Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) is the edition of the annual film festival held in Metro Manila, Philippines and organized by the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA). During the festival, no foreign films are shown in Philippine theaters (except IMAX theaters).
The festival began on December 23, 2015, kicking-off with the traditional Parada ng mga Artista (Parade of the Stars) float parade from Mall of Asia in Pasay to Quirino Grandstand in Manila. Showings are from December 25 until January 7.
The Gabi ng Parangal (Awards Night) was held on December 27 at the Kia Theatre, Araneta Center, Quezon City, hosted by KC Concepcion and Richard Gutierrez. Both the Parade of Stars and the Awards Night are aired via delayed telecast on TV5 thru a co-production with Viva Entertainment.
This is the first festival under the current organizing committee and MMDA chairman Emerson Carlos, after his predecessor Francis Tolentino resigned from his post in October 2015, to run for the Philippine Senate in the 2016 elections.
Metro Manila Film Festival reports that the total earnings of the festival is P468,000,000. But didn't say the earnings of each film.
