This studio behind “Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral” and “I’m Drunk, I Love You” decided to give us a breather.

Film festivals may have been postponed while microcinemas may be closed for the time being, but we can still enjoy Philippine cinema within our reach. What’s your favorite TBA Studios film? Hit us up at @scoutmagph on Twitter for your recos.
