About the Festival:
The Singkuwento International Film Festival Manila Philippines (SIFFMP) is an international film festival that brings a collection of films that explore different genres ranging from youth, personal relationships, demise and destruction, growing up dreams and pains and societal issues.

The festival’s main objective is to unite various Filipino and foreign filmmakers in our country and around the world. It is an avenue for Filipinos both here and abroad to share their voice, sentiments and thoughts via the films they have created. It also aims to provide a channel for non-Filipinos to share their impressions of the Philippines and its people.

The SIFFMP festival started in 2012 when five emerging filmmakers coming from different walks of life recount five different stories and bring them to life. From the documentary form to fictional narrative, from the streets of Manila to New York, Singkuwento International brings you a collection of films that explores topics ranging from youth to personal relationships to death to growing up to social issues. These films have also been around the globe, gracing film festivals both here and abroad.
