The Metro Manila Film Festival has announced its eight official entries for its maiden summer edition this April.

There were 33 film submissions, 23 of which are new entries while 10 are resubmissions from the MMFF last December. The selection committee then chose the final eight based on artistic excellence (40%), commercial appeal (40%), Filipino cultural sensibility (10%), and global appeal (10%).

The MMFF's summer edition will run from April 8 to 18 in all cinemas nationwide. It was supposed to take place in 2020 but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Parade of Stars, the annual tradition that showcases floats inspired by the competing films, will take place on April 2. Awarding ceremonies, meanwhile, will be held on April 11 at the New Frontier Theater in Cubao.
