The members of the Selection Committee, headed by respected industry leader Boots Anson-Rodrigo, chose the Top 8 based on the following criteria: Artistic Excellence, 40 percent; Commercial Appeal, 40 percent; Filipino Cultural Values, 10 percent; and Global Appeal, 10 percent.

Rodrigo said members of the selection committee deliberated heavily on all of the entries, following the rules and judging them as films.
“It is a collegial decision of a deliberative body,” she said.

With this year’s message “Balik Saya sa MMFF 2022”, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority and MMFF Concurrent Acting Chairman Engr. Carlo Dimayuga III urged moviegoers to support the festival, which has been part of the Christmas tradition of Filipinos over the years.

“Let us watch the MMFF in theaters once more. We are happy with the list of entries, which has a wide mix of genres. We are excited and looking forward to MMFF 2022 becoming a success,” said Dimayuga.

The 48th MMFF will run from 25 December 2022 to 7 January 2023, back in theaters nationwide but still observing the required health protocols. The Gabi Ng Parangal will be on 27 December.
