In its eighth year as the exclusive partner of Art Fair Philippines, Globe Platinum celebrated the ingenious past, present, and future of Philippine film by inaugurating the first-ever film program during the event on Feb. 21-23.

The film program featured a daily screening of films curated by award-winning writer, editor, and film composer Erwin Romulo, film historian Teddy Co, and film critic Philbert Dy.

Showcasing the diversity of Philippine cinema, the program included feature-length and short films, narrative and experimental films, documentaries, and animated films. Throughout the program, a panel of film experts and enthusiasts exchanged views on the future of Philippine cinema.
