The Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival and Competition is a key project of the Cinemalaya Foundation, Inc. which was established since 2004 for the following purposes: to help develop and support the production of cinematic works of Filipino independent filmmakers that boldly articulate and freely interpret the Filipino experience with fresh insight and artistic integrity; to discover, encourage, support, train and recognize gifted Filipino independent filmmakers; to promote Filipino independent films locally and internationally; and to establish a network for exchange, communication, and cooperation among members of the independent film sector.
The Cinemalaya competition provides financial grants for the production of, at most, 10 full-length feature films which will then compete for the Best Full-length Film award. It also recognizes the work of short filmmakers.
