The 2011 Metro Manila Film Festival

100_8439

A blog about Manila is not complete without posting the fabulous Metro Manila Film Festival which is on it’s 37th year now. 

A few years back a good friend neighbor used to drag us to Roxas Boulevard to watch the Parade of Stars.  I’m not much of a showbiz person but I support anything that promote the Filipino talents, and I have always been amazed on how the floats of each participating movie is exhibited.  It is a great experience seeing how the float designs improved each year both in artistry and technology. This year I am lucky to catch some floats being set-up just before they are lined-up for the Parade of the Stars.
