After its successful launch last year, ToFarm Film Festival* is back this 2017. With the latest theme ‘Planting Seeds of Change’, #ToFarmFilmFestival2017 is set to open on July 11 at Novotel Hotel, Ballrooms 2 and 3. It will re-introduce the six film-finalists to this year’s competition.


  • Victor Acedillo Jr.’s ‘Kamunggai’ (Malunggay)
  • Topel Lee’s ‘Baklad
  • Byron Bryant’s ‘Sinandomeng
  • Joseph Abello’s ‘What Home Feels Like
  • Jason Paul Laxamana’s ‘Instalado
  • Tara Illenberger’s ‘High Tide’.

*TOFARM Film Festival is the brainchild of Dr. Milagros O. How, Executive Vice President of Universal Harvester, Inc. This festival aims to uplift the farmers as well as his professional development. It is most worthy and significant since this is the only film festival that showcases the lives, journeys, aspirations, trials and tribulations – failures and successes of the farmers and other stewards of agriculture.
