Cinephilia is a full-time job; festival-going a year-round affair. As one reaches its close, out springs the next. The staples—Cinemalaya, Cinema One Originals, QCinema, and others—aren’t easy to miss, but to not seek out smaller, more obscure film fests is doing yourself grave disservice.

Which is what brings us here, our ultimate, definitive list of film festivals in the Philippines. We’ve scoured the internet for information on each festival so you won’t miss one this year.

Note that some information aren’t set in stone—especially the “location”—as some fests tend to try out different venues for their programs. Down to the very end of the post is a form which festival organizers can use to add their film festival to the list (or update an existing listing).
