Hand-painted posters of movies that are part of this year's Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino (PPP) are displayed at three SM cinemas on September 18, 2019. The posters were on display at SM Megamall, SM North, and Mall of Asia as part of the centennial celebration of Philippine Cinema. 

The paintings are an homage to an old form of promotion of movies up until the 1990s, when movie posters were hand-painted by craftsmen on billboards. 

Digitally printed tarpaulins eventually replaced hand-painted billboards.
