watch alternative movies (foreign, independent, experimental, etc.) in Metro
ALTERNATIVE MOVIE THEATERS
UP FILM CENTER
At the UP Film Center you can watch all sorts of film on the big
screen (sometimes for free and sometimes you have to pay). You can also,
I think, watch whatever they have on video in their film library. Plus you
can also get e-mails about what is showing on their big screen on a monthly
At the CCP you can watch whatever they have in their video library
(I would think lotsa Filipino movies) for a minimal library fee as long as
you reserve in advance.

Another website for movies showing in Metro Manila
Yet another website

meet independent filmmakers.
METRO MANILA FILM FEST
For the more mainstream Filipino movies, held in December after
Sponsored by Louie's THX, a noble effort to improve filmmaking
in the Philippines.
ALTERNATIVE MOVIE THEATERS AND VENUES ABROAD
When abroad it is always good to get weekly city guide magazines like
TIME OUT to find out what movies are showing.
It is also important to find out if the movie is subtitled in English if
you are in a non-English speaking land.
NEW YORK CITY
In New York there are literally tons of alternative movie theaters.
First check out the
NYTODAY website which for me was the best website in New York City for
Then check out the following for even more info
TIME OUT New York City for more movie scheds.
Time Out can also be bought at newsstands and the Village Voice can be found for
free at some street corners and stores in New York.
Also in New York they have these two websites called
KOZMO.COM that will deliver any video to your place in under an hour.
Surprisingly (or maybe not) they have a very deep and diverse selection of
even non-mainstream films. So if you use these websites you can almost get
to watch any movie you want in the comfort of your own home!
And also check out the MOMA (Museum of Modern Art), where
you can watch any movie you want as long as you reserve in advance.
So it is a good idea that when you arrive in New York,
to call the MOMA right away and reserve so that you can watch movies. The
MOMA considers film to be an art form so I guess they should have a very
diverse library of movies.
Plus you must check out the NYU-Tisch Film School, the bluest of the blue,
film school of america. They also have screenings of student works and
So I guess this should apply to every city. Check out the movie theaters,
museums, universities, websites and magazines to find out how and where you
can find alternative movies.
The best filmmaking school in the Philippines, Mowelfund teaches
around thirty people a year the basics of filmmaking for around ten thousand
bucks. But with that you get one month of lectures, five months of
filmmaking experience plus the expertise of top film practicioners of the
Philippines. Mowelfund provides the film, equipment and cameras at no extra
charge. But what Mowelfund provides even more is the opportunity to hobnob
with the country's best directors. Mowelfund launched the career of Raymond
Red (Cannes Film Festival Winner) and up and coming directors Robert Quebral
(Picha Pie MTV of Parokya ni Edgar, Kitakits sa McDo commercial) and Oreaus
(Huling El Bimbo MTV for the Eraserheads). For people wanting to break into
filmmaking, Mowelfund is a great place to start!
The ultimate movie website!
The coolest commercials website!
The birthplace of Michael Bay (Bad Boys, The Rock), Spike Jonze (Being John
Malkovich), David Fincher (Fight Club, Alien 3), Simon West (Con Air),
Dominic Sena (Gone in Sixty Seconds) and the up and coming John Moore,
director of the totally awesome Sega Dreamcast Thief commercial! Gedamit!
What an elite bunch-a directors! Just wait awhile while you dowload this
site because it takes long but it is worth it.
The place to find the buzz on up and coming movies.
