Portrait of an Artist as Filipino
If you’re into classic films, this film adaptation of a renowned Nick Joaquin play is a must-see. It revolves around the story of an impoverished painter, his two daughters, and his obra maestra during the pre-World War II era. It is where the movie Ang Larawan, a 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival entry, was based. It was restored in 2014 and was re-released in 2018, and you can finally stream it on iFlix.
The Hows of Us
The Hows of Us was such a hit last year that it became one of the highest grossing Filipino films of all time. Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel (more popularly known as KathNiel) portray a loving couple who is faced with the challenges of being in a long-distance relationship. Prepare your tissues, this one’s an ultimate tearjerker.

All the original sang’gres: Sunshine Dizon, Iza Calzado, Karylle and Diana Zubiri is included in this film, and they join forces to defeat the evil in the film. This is the glow up we deserve!

Four Sisters and a Wedding
We don’t know about you, but Four Sisters and a Wedding is a film that deserves more than just one re-watch.

Most of the scenes here became iconic memes on social media. You can finally replay Teddie’s “Ma, I’m sorry ma!” or listen to Bobbie’s iconic “Bakit parang kasalanan ko?” multiple times! Go watch it with your fam after Visita Iglesia.
