For this edition the festival will present many activities and changes. There will be a book presentation written by Nestor O. Jardin the presinde tof the Cinemalaya Foundation. We will know the winner of the Cinemalaya Logo Contest. The organizers introduced a new new award called Cinemalaya Achievement Award that will recognize filmmakers or organizations for outstanding and distinguished work in Philippine Independent cinema. Finally the festival will present a documentary called “The Cinemalaya 2014 Exhiibit” that shows the last ten years of the festival.
“The road to Cinemalaya X has not been smooth but definitely rewarding, We can’t help but be proud of what our filmmakers have achieved – the outstanding films they produced, the unique subject matters and stories they revealed to us, and the awards and recognition they garnered.” - Nestor O. Jardin president of the Cinemalaya Foundation.
