It’s not a secret that staying at home is one of the best ways to help flatten the COVID-19 curve in the country. But with the restrictions of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), general community quarantine (GCQ), and modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) mandate, it truly makes everyone miss the joys of the outside world.

Excited yet? Mark your calendars for these shows for the month of May! (Read: Have you seen these Filipino films on YouTube yet?)
