Akei, PinoyG4M, and Pelikula Tumblr celebrated the opening of Sine Bahaghari last Saturday at Chef’s Bistro in Tomas Morato, Quezon City. The first installment of this four-weekend film festival featured two LGBT-themed films: Raya Martin’s “Next Attraction”, and the much-anticipated “Ang Sayaw Ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa” by Alvin Yapan.
The organizers thank the people who attended the first screening including representatives from Outrage Magazine, Accenture Flag, Out Philippines, and the LGBT group of JP Morgan Chase. Our heartfelt thanks go as well to Raya Martin, director of the critically-acclaimed “Next Attraction”, for coming to the event.
We are beaming with pride and appreciation on the big turnout of the February 11th screening despite the slight technical difficulties that occurred at the second half of the event. In behalf of the organizers of Sine Bahaghari, we wish to extend our sincerest apologies for what happened.
In light of this, we are pleased to inform you that we will hold a special repeat screening of Alvin Yapan’s “Ang Sayaw Ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa” on February 19, 5PM, at Chef’s Bistro in Scout Gandia cor. Tomas Morato, Quezon City.
Sine Bahaghari thanks directors Raya Martin and Alvin Yapan, and producer Alemberg Ang for allowing us to screen their films for free. We are also very grateful to Chef’s Bistro for accommodating the first Sine Bahaghari screening and for graciously offering to host the repeat screening of “Sayaw”.
Sine Bahaghari also invites everyone to come see our other screenings on February 18 at the UP Film Institute Videotheque, February 24 at Cinema is Incomplete, and February 25 at Kanto. For the line up of films to be screened on those dates, please see the Sine Bahaghari website.
