Though, smothered with questions and controversies because of the recent news about the disqualification of Erik Matti’s movie, Honor Thy Father on the Best Picture category, MMFF managed to snatch the spotlight back to their stage as they announced their winners in the 41st Metro Manila Film Festival.
The Entries to MMFF 2015 include Beauty and the Bestie fronted by Vice Ganda and Coco Martin, My Bebe Love: #KiligPaMore with Vic Sotto and Aiai Delas Alas, All You Need Is Pag-Ibig with Kris Aquino, Haunted Mansion of Mother Lily Monteverde, Buy Now, Die Later with Vhong Navarro, Honor Thy Father with John Lloyd Cruz as the lead actor, Nilalang with Cesar Montano, and the romantic comedy film, Walang Forever with Jennylyn Mercado and Jericho Rosales.
