Lola movieThe Melbourne International Film Festival presents a vibrant selection of cinema from around the world. The 2010 festival will screen over 300 films including world premieres and a number of prize-winning films from World-Class festivals including Cannes. The program will once again feature the work of world-renowned filmmakers, and more than a couple of unknown gems.

Throughout MIFF’s 59 year history, our programming has endeavoured to champion cinema from across the globe that would otherwise not reach Melbourne’s screens.

The following Philippine films/documentary we will be shown:

INDEPENDENCIA (Tagalog, Dir. Raya Martin, Drama)

Lola (Tagalog, Dir. Brillante Mendoza, Drama)

Machete Maidens Unleashed (Filipino/English, Dir. Mark Hartley, Documentary)
