Globe Telecom empowers home-grown treasures such as locally-produced movies by being the exclusive presenter of the 2020 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) and urging to protect the Philippine film industry through its anti-piracy advocacy #PlayItRight.
The availability of MMFF movies on digital platforms makes them an easy target for piracy. Because of this, Globe appeals to everyone to watch only from legal sources, promoting love for the country and its rich local talents by emphasizing to keep the local film industry alive.
The need to curb piracy is crucial as the Philippines has one of the highest levels of online piracy, with 49% of Filipinos admitting to accessing streaming piracy websites or torrent sites, and 10% using illicit streaming devices (ISDs) to access pirated content, according to a September 2020 YouGov consumer survey.
