The Philippine Cinema has a long and fascinating history. As Spain and America's colony at the turn of the century, the Philippines had been exposed to so many cultural and social changes. The arrival of the "moving pictures" in the Philippines in 1897 was, at that time, a thing of curiosity. But the curiosity somewhat developed into fascination, and later obsession. Some of the earliest movies produced anywhere in Asia were made in the Philippines. Since the cinema's inception in the Philippines, the movies had been composed of foreign and locally produced movies. Different movie genres has been made and even Filipino filmakers have already ventured into indie film-aking. With various awards and nominations gathered from different international award giving bodies, it is not an exaggeration to say that Filipinos can now compete in the international arena story wise.
