Just in time for another announcement of MECQ in NCR and nearby provinces, is the start of one of the most popular film festivals in the country – Cinemalaya. Traditionally, Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival is being celebrated annually at Cultural Center of the Philippines; this year, due to ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, Cinemalaya will go online for the very first time!
The virtual film festival will run from August 7 to August 16, 2020. Festival films will be available in vimeo in different packages and bundles. So for those avid fans of Cinemalaya’s indie films, let’s continue showing our support in the comfort of our homes.
For a first-time Vimeo user like me, I actually had a hard time purchasing the bundles; I was not able to see a lot of how to purchase the Cinemalaya film bundles online or in social media so it became a challenge for me. I have been planning to watch all the main and shorts films this year since it is digital but I was not able to do it on its 1st day, August 7.
How to Buy Cinemalaya 2020 Tickets/Bundles:
