The 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) is an annual film festival held in Manila. The festival, which runs from the 25th of December to the first week of January, focuses on locally-produced films. It is organized by the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA).

During the course of the festival, no foreign movies are shown across the Philippines. Moreover, only films approved by the jurors of the MMFF will be shown. One of the festival highlights is the parade of floats during the opening of the festival. The floats, each one representing a movie entry for the festival, parade down Roxas Boulevard, while the stars for films ride on them. On the awards night, the Best Float award is also announced, together with the major acting awards.

Ask Mindy

"Magandang araw, Mindy! Nakakarindi nang marinig sa balita sa radyo o TV ang kabi-kabilang pagkahuli o pagpatay sa mga tulak o gumagamit ng ipinagbabawal na gamot. Kailan lamang ay nahuli pa ang isang sikat na aktor na may dala raw na isang kilo ng marijuana. Totoo bang maaari siyang makulong nang habambuhay? -Rap"


Halloooo, Rap! Oo nga, maging ako'y nababahala na sa kabi-kabilang paghuli at pagpatay. Ayon sa R.A. 9165 Section 5, life imprisonment o kaya'y kamatayan at multa mula P500,000 hanggang 10,000,000 ang ipapataw sa sinumang magtitinda o mamamahagi ng ipinagbabawal na gamot. May kaukulan ding parusa ang mga tagapondo at protektor nito. Nakapaloob naman sa Section 11 nito na ang sinumang may dala ng ilegal na droga ay maaaring patawan ng habambuhay na pagkakakulong at multa mula P500,000 hanggang P10,000,000 ang ipapataw sa sinumang may dala ng ilegal na droga: 10 gramo o higit pa ng opium, morphine, heroin, cocaine, shabu, marijuana oil; 500 gramo o higit pa ng marijuana, at 10 gramo o higit pa ng ecstasy, paramethoxyamphetamine (PMA), trimethoxyamphetamine (TMA), lysergic acid diethylamine (LSD), gamma hydroxyamphetamine (GHB), at iba pang bagong labas na gamot at mga derivates nito. May kaukulan ding parusa kung mas mababa sa dami ng nabanggit ang nasabat. Dahil sa wala naman talagang buting maidudulot ang paggamit ng bawal na gamot at nanganganib pa ang buhay ng mga nagtutulak at gumagamit nito, mabuti pang habang maaga'y tigilan o iwasan na ito.
