The four top-grossing films of the 2017 Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival have been disclosed.
This was revealed by talent manager and columnist Noel Ferrer through an Instagram post on August 11.
According to Noel's order of announcement, these are: Ang Pamilyang Hindi Lumuluha, Respeto, Nabubulok, and Kiko Boksingero.
Ang Pamilyang Hindi Lumuluha features Sharon Cuneta in her comeback film after 9 years, along with Moi Bien and Kiko Matos. The movie is written and directed by Mes de Guzman.
Respeto, a film directed by Treb Monteras, stars Fliptop personalities Abra and Loonie.
The suspense thriller Nabubulok is topbilled by Gina Alajar, JC Santos, Jameson Blake and Hollywood actor Billy Ray Gallion. It is the debut film of ABS-CBN writer Sonny Calvento.
Lastly, Kiko Boksingero is a movie directed by Thop Nazareno. It features child star and The Voice Kids alumnus Noel Comia Jr. His co-stars include Yayo Aguila and Yul Servo.
