It’s been a month since the most awaited Cinemalaya Film Festival happened IRL, where a roster of full-length and short films graced various cinemas after a two-year virtual run. In case you still feel lingering FOMO and missed out on some films, don’t worry, Cinemalaya heard you.
From Sept. 8 to 16, you have your chance to see all the Cinemalaya 18 competition films, including the selected winners from the 34th Gawad CCP Para sa Alternatibong Pelikula at Video, at their screenings in University of the Philippines Diliman’s Cine Adarna. Take your pick from the lineup and peep the screening schedule below:
Gaya ng ipinangako, hindi lang hanggang Agosto ang Cinemalaya ngayong taon!

Regular tickets are priced at P200 per film, while those for students, senior citizens, and persons with disabilities are P150. Make sure to come early as tickets are limited, and selling will start an hour before the movie starts.
Before watching, there is one requirement besides securing your ticket: Be a responsible citizen. Wear your face masks at all times and present your vaccination cards upon entering. After every screening, don’t leave the cinema just yet so you can catch the talkback sessions.
To help you decide on the next film to watch, here’s a quick (re)visit of the festival’s full-length films.
