Sinabi ng FDCP Chairperson na si Liza Dino na magkakaroon uli ng Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino sa 2018 dahil sa success ng PPP this year.

Ayon sa FDCP head, marami sila babaguhin next year. Plano nilang bawasan ang entry from 12 to 8 na lang para mas equal ang distribution sa mga sinehan. Ayon sa kanya, may mga sinehan kasi 3 or 4 lang ang screens at mas likely na ma-accommodate nila ang 8 films. Iniisip rin nila na baka ang mga piliin na entries na bagong gawa at hindi pa napapanood sa ibang film festivals.

Sa kabila ng success ng PPP ay may bumabatikos rin at tinatanong kung bakit nagkaroon ng Metro Manila Film Fest (MMFF) sa buwan ng August. Ngunit hindi nila ito pinansin at pinagpatuloy nila ang PPP. Hindi rin niya inaasahan na ganito ang success na matatamo ng Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino.

Narito ang 12 entries ng Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino 2017:
