Why Our  Festival Matters

The First Reel

As the first ever festival of films from the Philippines in Berlin, The First Reel establishes a well-defined community for Filipino filmmakers on the global stage. It embraces both Filipino filmmakers based in the home country and those who are based in other countries. In a sense, the festival serves as a unifying space for Filipino filmmakers of the world who continue to be bound to Filipino identity.


The First Reel is also a venue for Filipinos in Germany to touch base with their culture as they are given the opportunity to interact with Filipino filmmakers who, like them, are part of the diaspora.
