The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many events around the world to be canceled or postponed.
Malacaňan palace declared that shooting for films can resume in areas under General Community Quarantine (GCQ) beginning May. However, since NCR remains under Enhanced Community Quarantine, it would mean doing location shoots in GCQ areas far away.
Based on the guidelines released by the IATF, theatres, concerts, bars, festivals or any form of mass gatherings will remain closed under ECQ and GCQ areas. There is little to no assurance that the Metro Manila Summer Film Festival will come to reality.
Expect that there will be many theatre and movie houses, bars and other forms of entertainment venues will face closure if this pandemic still exists.
Here is the running list of the canceled events due to COVID 19 pandemic in the Philippines:
