Each of the 25 films were provided a seed grant of P500,000 by the Cinemalaya Foundation, and were monitored to guide "the new filmmaker to meet professional standards set by Cinemalaya in the financial, artistic and technical aspects of filmmaking, particularly casting decisions."

Of the foundation's involvement in the production of its film entries, Cinemalaya Foundation Chairman Tonyboy Cojuangco said it is careful to strike a balance between "the foundation's desire to catch potential technical and artistic flaws and the new filmmaker's passion to make bold decisions."

"Keeping this delicate balance, we believe, has been the strength of Cinemalaya as it continues to produce films that are daring in its storytelling yet cognizant of industry standards," Cojuangco said.

Now on its 8th year, the Cinemalaya Festival will premiere the 25 film entries starting July 20-29 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and the Ayala Cinemas in Greenbelt Makati and Trinoma Quezon City.
