A fantastic Regal Entertainment Christmas party

Regal matriarch Lily Monteverde hosted a Christmas party for the press

Just like the noche buena, the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) has become a tradition among Filipinos at Christmas time. And the annual filmfest—when all movie houses in Metro Manila are mandated to show only local films—will not be complete without at least one entry from Regal Entertainment.

This year, the film outfit is offering not one, but four, movies of different genres which it proudly calls the "Fantastic Four"—Mano Po 5: Gua Ai Di, Zsazsa Zaturnnah Ze Moveeh, Super Noypi, and Shake Rattle & Roll 8.

The word "fantastic" also befits the Christmas party Regal matriarch Lily Monteverde threw last December 18 at the Imperial Palace Suites in Quezon City for the entertainment press. Everyone was treated to sumptuous cuisine and drinks while gift certificates and cash prizes were raffled off.

There were also fun games that had some stars from the four Regal MMFF entries joining in. This early, the atmosphere was much like what one would find in a victory party! Regal is, of course, looking to make a killing at the box-office.

In a press statement, Mother Lily said, "I've spent more than two hundred million pesos for this year's Metro Manila Film Festival, but everyone here made it look like I spent six hundred million pesos. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

"Christmas and the MMFF are all about families, especially the children, that is why we are giving them enough fantasy, action, adventure, romance and comedy to last them till next year. Every Filipino family deserves only the best, and Regal Films is totally committed to giving it to them."

Celebrities present that evening were Roxanne Guinoo, Janus del Prado, Michelle Madrigal, Dino Imperial, IC Mendoza, Alwyn Uytingco, Sergio Garcia, Joseph Bitangcol, Sandara Park, Ethel Booba, Ehra Madrigal, Iza Calzado, Polo Ravales, Alfred Vargas, and Joel Lamangan (director of Mano Po 5 and Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah).


The Metro Manila Film Festival kicks off on December 25.
