A new film festival will be hitting the theaters starting March 18 until 24.
Sinag Maynila, a brainchild of Solar Entertainment CEO Wilson Tieng and critically-acclaimed film director Brillante Mendoza, joins the ranks of local independent film festivals offering films that aim to push boundaries by showcasing the Filipino individuality.
For their first year, they will feature five full length films by carefully chosen directors, each given a Php 2 million grant. The films will be shown in the following venues: SM Manila, SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, SM North EDSA, SM Fairview, SM Southmall, and SM Aura Premier. Meanwhile, the awards night will be held at SM Aura Premier on March 21st.
Note: e-PLUS members get 50% discount on movie tickets.

This is such a great and detailed infographic.Would you mind to disclose how you just create this awesome infographic?
Hi! Thank you, much appreciated. I used an online app for this –PIKTOCHART. Try it! 🙂 I am yet to learn photoshop so, this. Hehe
How much is the ticket? Thank you.
Hello! Tickets are sold at regular prices. I think it ranges from P180 and up, depending on which mall you’ll be watching. 🙂
All these films are in tagalog? Singapore has such festivals too and tickets are often sold out!
I’m not yet sure if all are in Tagalog as some indie films are in local dialect. Yes, hopefully people would support this initiative as it’s good for the film industry.
never heard of these films before but i think swap and ninja party sounds like really interesting movies!
Yes, Mia! Ninja Party is actually kind of controversial heh.
seems nice film to see. Gonna save March 2 SM Southmall. that is the nearest sa place namin.
How was it, Papaleng? Imbisibol swiped almost all the prizes! 🙂
I saw this being promoted on Solar channel. I’m pretty interested to see Imbisibol. Sounds like a good plot.
Imbisibol bagged the Best Picture and six others out of eight awards! Were you able to catch it? 🙂
No. 🙁 I caught the flu that lasted me 2 1/2 weeks.
Aw sorry to hear that. I hope you’re feeling better now, May.
The schedule in Megamall is more suited for me, but that mall is so far! The North EDSA is nearer for me, but the schedules are not too good for me. 🙁 – Fred
What do you think about Ninja Party, Fred? Were you able to watch it? 🙂
We need to have more of this. It really gives great opportunity for aspiring Filipino film makers.
I agree, leyba. Sadly Cinemalaya is not having full length films this year but will resume next year 🙂
Another way to hone more directors and artists. And this right here revolutionizes the movie industry! I think this is a good move! Would have to give my two thumbs up for this! 🙂
Couldn’t agree more, Raymond 😉
Awesome infographic! You should definitely try using Photoshop.
I don’t usually go to cinemas, might go this month though and will check out this festival. Thanks!
Yes, I will try my best at Photoshop! Thanks! 🙂
Oh so this is the Sinig maynila FB is buzzing about. I’m into indie films and supporting local, so i’m definitely going to a nearby SM cinema to watch the movies!
Yes, please support local films 🙂 thanks phylicia!
I watch it on TV ad about SINAG and I super love all of the movies. Hope it will be shown nationwide.
I think they have plans on showing it on various regions across the country 🙂
Looks like a great infographic.. Shall be informative for those whom planning to attend the festival..
Thanks kylie! 🙂
It’s nice to see more indie films featured. A film in the list might be a surprise hit that can gather mainstream attention.
Yeah, marketing is vital. And funds. Sadly.
This looks like a great event with some very interesting films for review and locations to see them. I’d love to catch a few.
Thanks eliz 🙂
Nice infographic! I like how you add the social media links and hashtags at the bottom too.
Oh, I’m no longer the one who did those. I only did the first image 🙂
Thanks for such a nice feature Shayne! Promise to invite you to the next Sinag Maynila festival! 😀
