Boasting a healthy film industry from the 1930s onward, the Philippines became a hub for foreign investors and exploitation cinema in the 1960s and then found its filmmakers growing both more socially
conscious and subject to censorship in the '70s. Today, a shrunken marketplace has hurt commercial production but also encouraged a new generation of independents who's fostered new interest amongst adventuresome cineastes.
