Metro Manila Film Festival 2007: Another Scam

Metro Manila Film Festival 2007

Caveat Emptor…

…the posters…the trailers…the publicity…it’s all one grand scam. The scam which was started years ago by Lolit Solis has now evolved into an organized conspiracy. The promoters, the producers, the actors…they’re all in cahoots with one another. Don’t believe any word they’re saying…because behind those inviting MMFF results…are just execrable films.


The 33rd Metro Manila Film Festival winners were announced at the SMX Exhibition Center of the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City last January 5, 2008. The ceremony was hosted by Boy Abunda. The winners were  announced immediately without mentioning the nominees of each category.  The said awards night lasted for only less than one hour. This is to give way for Lani Misalucha’s Concert.
