Here's the Complete Lineup for Cinemalaya 2017 Who else is excited?

It's that time of the year again to show our full support to local filmmakers. The Cultural Center of the Philippines, in partnership with the Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival, is slated to launch nine major films for the festival that will happen from August 4 to 13, 2017.
