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.

Since the cinema's inception in the Philippines, the movies had been composed of foreign and locally produced movies.
