THIRTY-PERCENT (30%) DISCOUNT ON TICKETS TO MMFF ENTRIES FOR STUDENTS, PWDS AND SENIOR CITIZENS
In order to ensure the success of MMFF 2016, some producers have proposed to the MMFF Executive Committee to adopt measures to attract more viewers to watch all the entries in the Festival.
One of the promotional activities suggested is to make available an option to all movie producers to option to grant thirty-percent (30%) discount on tickets to students, PWDs and senior citizens, in cooperation with cinemas and other stakeholders of the movie industry.
The MMFF Executive Committee gave due course to the said proposal on the grant of thirty-percent (30%) discount on tickets to students, PWDs and senior citizens, at the option of the producers and with the cooperation of cinemas and other stakeholders of the movie industry. The Execom further resolved that the said option of giving thirty-percent (30%) discount shall be implemented only starting on the third day of the Festival or December 27, 2016 until January 3, 2017.
Meanwhile, the MMFF Execom dispelled reports that Star Cinema is pulling out its entry, “Vince & Kath & James,” purportedly due to the 30 percent discount on ticket prices.
“Just like all the other producers, they have been supportive of the MMFF initiatives in bringing more people to the Festival every year,” Chairman Tim Orbos stressed.
