The Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival and Competition seeks to discover, encourage, and honor the cinematic works of Filipino filmmakers that boldly articulate and freely interpret the Filipino experience with fresh insight and artistic integrity. The works are narrative features that articulate the Filipino identity and culture in digital format. The competition is held in three categories: the New Breed Full Length Feature, Short Feature and the Director’s Showcase.

Cinemalaya 2014, which will be marking its 10th year this year, will be held on August 1 to 10 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and Ayala Cinemas at TriNoma, Greenbelt 3 and Alabang Town Center. It is a project of the Cinemalaya Foundation, Inc., in partnership with the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP).
