Tres, the first Sine Panitik film trilogy produced by the Film Academy of the Philippines featuring adaptations of classic Filipino short stories, expanded its coverage of screenings for students to Mati, Davao Oriental, and Lucena, Quezon in November and December.
The screenings in Mati were held at the Mati national Comprehensive High School, Rabat Elementary School and the Immaculate Heart of Mary High School on Nov. 17 and 18.

The film was submitted to the Cinema Evaluation Board where it received a B rating which entitles it to a 65 percent rebate of the amusement taxes generated during its commercial run in theaters all over the country.
Tres was produced with the support and cooperation of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), Quezon City Film Development Commission (QCFDC), and the Department of Education (DepEd).
