Founded in 2019, Mannalon International Film Festival is a unique agricultural program driven by farmer philosophies and values. Mannalon International Film Festival is culturally responsive, Indigenous-run, anti-racist and generous by design. Our mission—to change the narrative by amplifying Farmer voices—is at the heart of who we are: Storytellers. We provide a platform from which Farmer can share their stories through film screenings, post-film discussions with community and industry professionals.
Along with the rest of the world we had to become more creative in our work of amplifying farmer voices. Our year long screenings of agricultural films took a detour from our brick and mortar venues and went to outdoor spaces and venues. Traditionally, our team would attend film festivals to watch films that we would bring back to Marcos, Ilocos Norte Philippines. In lieu of attending film festivals, we are reaching out via wfcn to find our 2021 line up of great agricultural made films.
