Gather your secret ingredients, unearth family recipes and roll the cameras as the National Commission For Culture and The Arts (NCCA), powered by YATU Film Productions and North Luzon Cinema Guild Inc., launches 2022’s edition of Cinema Culinarya Film Festival (CCFF).


In accordance with Proclamation No. 469, declaring April as the “Filipino Food Month” or “Buwan Ng Kalutong Pilipino,” CCFF aims to champion well-crafted short films that showcase tasteful narratives, culinary practices, and traditions in hopes of strengthening the Filipino food identity and honoring its rich heritage.
