PRESS RELEASE

June 4, 2022 


CHAMPION the lives and struggles of the LGBTQIA+ community through the special screening of selected Cinemalaya and Gawad Altenatibo films this June 10, 2022 (Friday) at 2 PM at the Tanghalang Manuel Conde.

Celebrate the Pride Month with Eduardo Roy’s “F#@*bois,” shown back-to-back with short films “My Mamily” by Cha Roque and “Blue Is Not My Favorite Color” by Vahn Leinard Pascual.

F#@*Bois follows the story of two seasoned beauty pageant contenders, Ace and Miko. Living in a world where donning their bikini briefs is the easiest way to achieve fame and fortune, an ex-lover threatens to expose them and shock their followers on social media.

My Mamily is a short, animated film about the struggles and triumphs of a lesbian family as seen through the eyes of a child. It is a reflection of how children are born non-judgmental and how adults, schools, and other institutions are responsible for raising children who are accepting of differences. My Mamily provides a peek into diverse kinds of families and how above everything, love is what makes a family.

A short, animated, documentary film, Blue Is Not My Favorite Color centers on a family photo album that becomes an animated journey for an only-child reflecting on his parent’s belief that a color could influence his gender preference.
