About unreel.ph

Welcome to Unreelthe definitive outlet on (world) cinema culture. We’ve built this space around one crucial notion: “every frame is magic.”

We take these words to heart. And it is these words that fuel our work.

Chief among them is to invite as many people as we can to reflect on movies more deeply. A movie, after all, is a trove of treasures, and each frame is like a bejeweled chest. Moreover, we want to provide Filipino moviegoers a space online that’s inclusive, unbiased, and completely independent.

We launched our blog—unreel.ph—in December 2017, with two editors, Geoffrey Ledesma and Armando Dela Cruz. Here, we post movie reviews, news, and features, with a focus on Philippine and world cinema. Flash forward to 2020, we now produce a podcast and a YouTube channel.

Our mission is to provide an online resource for Filipino film lovers regardless of how deep they’re into it, be they a casual moviegoer or an avid film observer. We are determined to help put local films at the forefront of global movie discussions.
