The best Filipino movie posters don’t get enough glory. You can’t unmoor the image of defiant women features in the film poster of Ishmael Bernal’s “City After Dark” from its provocative themes. The intrigue that emanates from that still of one of the perfect moments from Raymond Red’s “Anino” used in its poster is unforgettable. The use of negative space and unconventional framing in the poster for Chito S. Roño’s “Signal Rock” is absolutely genius.

Though created first and foremost as marketing collateral, film posters are as much an art as it is marketing science. And by failing to highlight these works, there’s much being lost from the experience of cinema.

That inspires today’s post, which lists some of the best Filipino movie posters of all time.

A quick sidebar: some of the posters featured in this list are alternate posters, meaning they are not used as the primary collateral in marketing the films. There are also reissues, particularly in films that are restored and re-released for modern audiences, such as “Insiang”.
