Despite being a Cinemalaya regular, there have been instances when I would miss a film or two from the Festival. The screening schedules may be a bit tight for some festival-goers, which is why here in Unreel, we go on a “Cinemalaya Binge”, where we dedicated full days to see all the Shorts and Full-Length entries of Cinemalaya. We then collate our reviews of the films in a “Cinemalaya Festival Report”, so that our readers can get quicker yet more concise reviews of the films.

If you have missed some Cinemalaya films in the past, worry not because iFlix got you covered. Here are the Cinemalaya movies streaming right now in iFlix:
