Vice Ganda, Coco Martin, Ian Veneracion, Ivana Alawi and Toni Gonzaga are among the actors who will appear on the big screen soon as they are part of the first four movies chosen for the 48th Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).

MMFF revealed the first four entries in the annual film festival on its Facebook page today, July 8.


Vice Ganda will star in the Cathy Garcia-Molina film “Partners in Crime” alongside Alawi, while Martin will appear in “Labyu with an Accent” with Jodi Sta. Maria. Both films are produced by ABS-CBN Film Productions.

Veneracion will be working with Heaven Peralejo and Mon Confiado in “Nanahimik ang Gabi,” and Gonzaga will be starring with Joey de Leon in “The Teacher.”


The first four films were picked by MMFF’s selection committee based on script submissions, while the other four official entries will be chosen based on finished film submission in September.
