Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival

The Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival is the core project of the Cinemalaya Foundation that provides financial grants for the production of, at most, 10 full-length feature films which will then compete for the Best Full-length Film award. The Cinemalaya competition also recognizes the work of short filmmakers.

The Cinemalaya Campus is an important component of the Festival, providing a venue for interaction and dialogue between alternative filmmakers and those in the mainstream.
