Although the World’s borders are not open yet, but through this festival we can virtually be one. May this festival remind us that there is healing in the arts, it 
makes us smile, laugh and cry and maybe this may heal us all! Soon we hope IFFM will revert back to a live event. Watch out for our announcement about

Thank you and God Bless! Mabuhay ang Pelikulang Pilipino ! Enjoy !
