MMFF Best Picture Winners from 1975 to 2010

Let's look at the Best Picture winners in the Metro Manila Film Festival for the last 36 years.

The controversial commercial viability (box-office performance of the entries) criterion that decided heavily on the selection of the Best Picture in previous festivals has been removed this year. The criteria this time for the selection of Best Picture(s) are artistry, creativity and technical excellence, innovativeness, thematic value and global appeal (70 percent) and Filipino cultural and/or historical value (30 percent).

MMFF Best Picture Winners from 1975 to 2010

2007 – Resiklo
2008 – Baler
2009 – Ang Panday
2010 – Ang Tanging Ina Mo, Last Na ‘To!

In the past 36 years, it was only in 1994 that there was no Best Picture winner. It’s also interesting to note that in 2006, Enteng Kabisote 3 won the Best Picture award beating the Star Cinema comedy Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo.

As controversial are this year’s results when Ang Tanging Ina Mo, Last Na ‘To won Best Picture besting the high-budgeted epic film Rosario. It was also questioned the non-inclusion of Jennylyn Mercardo among the Best Actress nominees, and Albert Martinez among the Best Director nominees.

Among the winning films from 1975 to 2010, which entry do you think was the Best Picture of all time?

    himala tlga ang the best movie ever made and tailor made for miss nora auanor .. hindi ako fantics pero bilang isang mag-aaral sa mass communication sya tlga ang pinakamahusay na aktres sa lahat ng panahon …. kasi pinapanood sa amin ng professor namin at piangsusuri kami tlga tulad ng relasyon tlgang nagkamli lang ang urian kasi si nora aunor ay henyo sa pag-arte ….

  3. nanalo ang HIMALA as the asia’s film of all time

  4. Definitely it’s KISAPMATA!!!

    Sa mga listahan sa itaas ang katangi tanging binawian ng award ng MMFF ay ang Burlesk Queen ni Ate Vi pati na ang Best Actress award ay binawi subalit hindi isinoli ni Ate Vi.May mga katiwaliang naganap nuong panahon na iyon at naging isang malaking eskandalo ang naturang parangal .History yan at yan ang unang eskandalo sa likod ng nasabing parangal. Naulit ng maraming beses ang eskandalo sa MMFF at ngayong taon ay kinukwestong muli ang pagkakapanalong ng pelikula ni Ai Ai. History na ito mula ngayon at tingnan natin kung sa susunod na maraming taon e may makaka alala pa sa pelikula ni Ai Ai kundi ang sarili nya at ang mga mahal nya sa buhay.

  7. HIMALA . The best movie of all time.No more producer of present generation can produce such movie .(Unless it will remake by foreigh pruducer ) .That was a very ambitious project of all time for Phlippine Cinema.

  8. Boba na Tanga Pa // December 31, 2010 at 4:59 am //

    naku kawawa naman si anonymous kasi naman sabad ng sabad sa usapan di naman nagbabasang maiigi ng headline ng topic.MMFF nga e hindi MFF.Sa yo anonymous ang MMF ay under lamang ng City of Manila at pinamamahalaan ng mga politiko at walang mga kredibilidad sa larangan ng Pelikula .Kaya nga nag scam at kinaya ni Lolit Solis na palitan ang mga tunay na winners that time.

  29. Ang ANAK po ba ay MMFF entry?

  30. Jose Rizal, Muro-Ami, Himala, at Tanging Yaman

    pero mas award-winning ang Jose Rizal at Muro-Ami.

  31. pano kaya kung nag laban laban ang himala, anak, burlesk queen, tanging yaman, jose rizal, muro ami, imortal, atsek sa isang year lng ng MMFF? mahigpit ang laban nito pag dating sa awarding!

  32. I think noong 1994, Maalala mo kaya ang best picture ni Aiko Melendez.. nagkaroon lang ng gulo that time dahil sa kagagawan ni Lolit solis

  33. Maganda silang lahat,kaya nga best picture eh..

  34. hayy naku... // December 28, 2010 at 9:37 pm //

    BURLESK QUEEN is really the BEST. It was masterfully crafted. A gem of a movie. Brilliantly acted by the star for all seasons..Gov. Vilma Santos.

  35. for me… HIMALA kasi it was way back 1982 but still they were able to make a movie with superb story line even though there is limited resources unlike now a days…

  36. ask q lng sa 2000 MMFF ung Anak po ba ay kasali din?

  37. Definitely its HIMALA!

  38. Pwedeng isali ang PLONING? ahehehe.. Great film din yun..

  39. 1. Tanging Yaman
    2. Muro ami
    3. Himala

  40. Tanging Yaman,,din pinakada best na film ever…

  41. Diligin Mo ng Hamog ang Uhaw na Lupa

  42. Himala and Tanging yaman the BEST..

  43. For me its either Muro Ami or Tanging Yaman both great films w/ a great directors, producers & cast.

  44. Tanging Yaman ang best picture of all time..for me :) para senyo ano?

  45. LETS BE FAIR! // December 28, 2010 at 7:34 pm //

    Pero, sa aking nakita na sa mga films na nanalo ng Best Picture, winner ‘yung Tanging Yaman. Todo iyak ako nun tsaka ang ganda ng storyline, ang mga actors. Ang ibang films hindi ko pa napanood eh. =D
