Here Are 20 Filipino Films You Can Watch During Pride Month
CinemaOne Originals is celebrating Pride Month through a virtual film festival called “Cinema at Home”—here are the movies they’re showing
The new world we’re living in may not allow for large gatherings and events—including marches and film festivals—but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate Pride and bask in the experience of moviegoing from the comfort of our own homes.
Metro Manila Pride, for example, has shifted to online activities this entire June as the annual parade has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. All throughout quarantine, too, creators and producers have been releasing their work for free—be it theatre shows, independent films, or documentaries.
This month of Pride, even more films will be made available to stream or watch for free. LGBTQ+ movies like Shift, Miss Bulalacao, Esprit De Corps, and more, will stream on iWant and Cinema One’s YouTube channel and air via the Cinema One channel as well as SKY Pay-Per-View through a virtual film festival called “Cinema at Home” with the theme “Be Brave, Be Proud, Be Original.”
Below, the movies that are showing in Cinema at Home:
Ang Paglalakbay ng mga Bituin sa Gabing Madilim
Esprit de Corps
Si Chedeng at si Apple
Mamu; and a Mother Too
