Official Statement on the Cancellation of Sinag Maynila 2020

Throughout our first five years, we proudly committed ourselves to being a ray of hope for Filipino filmmakers who seek to showcase the many facets of our country’s culture through their work. In the process, we also gave them the platform to screen their creations internationally and, in turn, give the world a glimpse of who the Pinoy storyteller is. This rings true to our slogan, “Sine Lokal Pang-Internasyonal.”

It’s a vision we wished to continue upholding as we entered what would have been our 6th year. But as we continue to brave through this unprecedented period, we have reached the difficult decision to not push through with our 2020 festival.

For the time being, we’ll be taking this opportunity to look for alternative platforms for our current line-up. We would like to thank all of our partners and the filmmakers for their continued support and understanding. Please stand by for further announcements.
