Saudi Cinemas To Show First Ever Filipino Movie

The General Commission for Audiovisual Media (GCAM) has announced its classification of the first ever movie from the Philippines to be shown in Saudi cinemas.

Running for 115 minutes and with Arabic subtitles, “Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles” tells the unusual story of a father and daughter police team taking on a crime syndicate, featuring Filipino actors Coco Martin, Maine Mendoza and Vic Sotto.

The GCAM said the release of the film represented a good opportunity to strengthen ties between the two nations, allowing new opportunities in the entertainment sector for Saudis and Filipinos living in the Kingdom.
