Watch the stars (and Filipino films) at CCP’s lawn for free

It looks like Christmas came a bit early for film buffs. The Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Media Arts Division is inviting us to spread some holiday cheer. In “Cinema Under The Stars,” we can watch some feel-good Filipino films at the CCP Front Lawn for free. Time to tell your friends to pull up on Dec. 13, 14, and 15 at 6 p.m.

One of the films in the lineup is Cinemalaya 2018’s “Pan De Salawal,” which follows a young girl named Aguy who mysteriously heals sick people in a community near the railroad—by inflicting physical pain, that is. There’s also clever comedy movie “Ang Babae sa Septic Tank” that tells an interesting parody on poverty porn.

Short films are also waiting for you—among these being “Asan si Lolo Me?” and “Sa Saiyang Isla,” which are both Cinemalaya award-winning shorts that deal with themes of childhood and growing up. You can view the full schedule below:

This is the next level movie marathon we deserve, kids. Merry Christmas!
