As part of our Spotlight on the Philippines, LPFF presents a collection of Philippine short films. The task of mapping the diverse cinema of the Philippines through short films is daunting, given that the country is composed of thousands of islands, hundreds of languages and dialects, and several religions and ideologies. The nation has given rise to myriad flavors and experiences that are simply impossible to encapsulate, but this program aims to offer a glimpse of the landscapes, contexts, and motivations that impassion Filipino artists to tell their stories through film. These filmmakers show us how the eclectic cinematic culture of the Philippines is very much a product of its past—its history, religion and traditions—as well as its present
All films are in their original languages with English subtitles.
The full selection will be screened every day at 12pm.
