Full and exciting movies are in the offing from Viva Films as they have launched its 2020 Vision featuring its full slate of films for the coming year at a thanksgiving party for the press and bloggers. The event was held to thank the press for their support in 2019.
2019 was a banner year for Viva, who produced 19 films, the most number of theatrical releases by any entertainment company in the Philippines. Viva has broadened the taste of Filipino viewers with experimental and daring subjects, online content turned commercial releases, book to film transformations and foreign adaptations with a Filipino twist.
2019 releases include Maria – the first Filipino Netflix film, Ulan- a surreal romance, Just a Stranger- a May December Affair, the comedy comeback of 90s comedians in Sanggano, Sanggago and Sanggwapo, the online to book to film sensation Jowable, the gentle love of Unforgettable, the daring Adan, the silent and deadly Mananita, the first team-up of Anne Curtis and Vice Ganda in the Mall the Merrier and the MMFF surprise hit Miracle in Cell No. 7. It was truly a miraculous year for Viva Films.
Viva Films 2020 Vision is even more exciting as Viva promises to produce 34 films with an investment of 1 billion pesos. This is proof of Viva Film’s confidence in Philippine Cinema.

Reimagined films also play a big part in the 2020 Vision. As global borders for content diminish, Viva seizes the opportunity to share the best of foreign films with local adaptations with a Pinoy twist. With the success of Miracle in Cell No 7 and Ms., Granny, Viva will be reimagining films from all over the world. Upcoming titles include A Hard Day, Spellbound, Wedding Dress, The Housemaid, A Man and a Woman, Sunny, More Than Blue, The Wedding Breaker, Instructions Not Included.

Caparas, Viva brings you Pedro Penduko, Joaquin Bordado, Elias Paniki, Gagambino, Kamandag, Valora, Berdugo , Totoy Bato and Panday.
