Welcome to Yfilms.ph
of the Yuchengco Museum
The Manila-based Yuchengco Museum, located in the heart of Makati City, has long been one of the Philippines’ pre-eminent cultural institutions. Founded in 2005, it has helped foster public appreciation of the arts through its ongoing local and international, cultural, historical and educational exhibits, shows, programs and screenings.
Its current focus, timed with the recent celebration of our country’s 100th year of Philippine Cinema, is to bring that same public appreciation for Filipino films created by both professional and student filmmakers.
This past February of 2022, the Yuchengco Museum launched its digital platform called Yfilms.ph by running a free 7-day online film festival that showcased films from TBA Studios (Heneral Luna, Goyo Ang Batang Heneral, K’na The Dreamweaver, Write About Love, to name a few) side by side with the student films (shorts and full-length movies) of CineMapua.
The film festival was very well-received, and we are happy to announce that expansion plans are currently underway to re-launch this same website with more full-length features, more short films, and new works by professional and student filmmakers from all over the Philippines and around the globe.
This time, the festival will not just be for a week; this website will be permanent and ongoing and be made available day and night, 24/7, so that audiences can watch these professional and student films, anytime they want to, from anywhere in the Philippines and around the world. Welcome to Yfilms.ph!
