Even on a rainy afternoon, the stars came out for the 43rd Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) Parade of Stars in Muntinlupa City on December 23.
A total of eight floats representing the eight official entries to the annual film festival made their much-awaited appearance as fans waited on the sides to catch a glimpse of their favorite stars.
These are the eight movies represented at the MMFF Parade of Stars: All of You, Ang Larawan, Ang Panday, Deadma Walking, Haunted Forest, Meant to Beh, Gandarrapiddo: The Revenger Squad, and Siargao.
For the first time, the MMFF Parade of Stars was held outside Manila. This year, the parade was hosted by the City Government of Muntinlupa, as part of the city's Centennial Celebration culminating activities.
The MMFF Parade of Stars commenced at the Muntinlupa Sports Center and ended at the Filinvest City Event Grounds in Alabang.
