The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) has officially partnered with the inaugural Puregold CinePanalo Film Festival. The renowned regulatory board has supported this landmark initiative in the Philippine film industry.

Ivy Hayagan-Piedad, Senior Marketing Manager at Puregold, emphasized the significance of this collaboration. “We are thrilled to partner with MTRCB for the Puregold CinePanalo Film Festival. Together, we aim to present a lineup of uplifting films that families and individuals will enjoy.” The MTRCB will oversee the suitability of each film entry, ensuring that they meet the legal standards required for local films.

MTRCB Chairperson Lala Sotto highlighted the board’s commitment to supporting the creative industry. “Our developmental and regulatory agency role extends beyond providing age-appropriate ratings. We actively support the creative industry by collaborating with organizations like Puregold Price Club, Inc. on initiatives like the Puregold CinePanalo Film Festival, which contribute to the revitalization of the national economy,” she stated.

Chairperson Sotto added, “Our partnership with Puregold aims to inspire Filipino audiences to support films that promote positive cultural values, contributing to the vision of a unified and prosperous New Philippines.”
