However, taking to its official Twitter account, PPP 2019 announced that it is extending the fest up until September 26. That’s all well and good, but it’s worth noting that the extension only applies (and half-applies) to certain films.
The above tweet clearly lists which movies will get more theaters, and those are The Panti Sisters, Open, Cuddle Weather, and LSS (Last Song Syndrome). The other four—Lola Igna, G!, I’m Ellenya L., and Watch Me Kill—will have additional screenings, but they are limited to one theater (presumably shared schedule via CineLokal) at SM Megamall, SM City Bacoor, and SM City Manila.
Visibly absent are two films: Adolf AlixJr.’s Circa and Hubert Tibi and Maria Ranillo’s Pagbalik.
