WATCH: This MMFF Entry Was Graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board

It's from a Palanca-winning screenplay!

( Movie buffs were delightfully entertained by Patay na si Hesus when it hit cinemas for the QCinema Film Festival in 2016. Now, the producers of the critically acclaimed film are back with Deadma Walking, whose screenplay won a Palanca in the same year.


Joross Gamboa and Edgar Allan Guzman play two gay best friends who are there for each other through life and death—literally. After getting diagnosed with cancer, one of them fakes their death, wake, and funeral, to see how his circle of friends (and possible love interests) really feel about him.



The film, directed by Julius Alfonso, was graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board. It’s the highest possible grade for a submitted entry. It will premiere on December 25 for the Metro Manila Film Festival. The movie also stars Candy Pangilinan, Dimples Romana, and there are cameo appearances by Gerald Anderson and Piolo Pascual.
