‘Pink Film Festival’, muling ibinabalik ng Quezon City

Ni:  Rose Garcia

PAGKATAPOS nang tatlong taon na tila namahinga, ang Quezon City government ay muling ibinabalik ang Pink Film Festival. 

Malaking bagay ang approval ng City Council ng ordinance protecting the rights if the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, queer (LGBTQ+) community against discrimination and harassment.

At the same time, it commemorates the 79th founding anniversary ng Quezon City at centennial ng Philippine cinema.

Imagine, 64 international and local feature films ang ipi-feature sa Pink Film Festival with filmmakers and actors from U.S., Brazil, Indonesia, Tonga, Spain, Taiwan, Japan, Thailand, Syria, Turkey at U.K.

Magkakaroon din ng mga seminars during the festival week with LGBTQ+ right advocates na siyang magli-lead ng discussion.

Sa Pilipinas, naka-line na i-commemorate ang buhay at mga naging kontribusyon ng former Quezon City Pride Council President at Film Director na si Soxie Topacio with his film, Ded na si Lolo.

Kasama rin sa line-up ang docu film na Call Her Ganda ni PJ Raval tungkol sa pinaslang na si Jennifer Laude.  Total of 42 shorts films din ang mapapanood mula sa Pilipinas at sa mga nabanggit na bansa.

Sa November 19-21 sa Gateway Cinema Complex Cubao at sa November 22-25 sa Cine Adarna sa U.P. at sa Cinema Centenario ang screening ng 2018 Pink Film Festival.
