Don’t Sleep On These Pinoy Flicks: Pista Ng Pelikulang Pilipino 2017

Remember that diverse Metro Manila Film Festival lineup we had last year? I personally wasn’t able to watch every single one of them (because I was stuck in Baguio City and they were showing like… just three of the eight official entries, even splitting one cinema for two films) but I thought it was a pretty solid lineup. There was an animated film (Saving Sally), a documentary (Sunday Beauty Queen), a feel-good rom-com (Vince and Kath and James), comedy and drama (Ang Babae sa Septic Tank 2, Die Beautiful), and even a thriller (Seklusyon).

It doesn’t look like we’re going to see a repeat of that lineup this year, though, but you know what? That’s fine. Because this August, we get an entire week of what looks like some of the best new (and new-ish?) releases via Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino! Check out the 12 films that made it to this year’s list!

Relive Summer Crush With Gio and Gab!

Back in April, Jay, Six, and I released this summer music festival anthology called Summer Crush, something we had a lot of fun putting together. (Exhausting too, but all worth it.) As a special gift to those who bought the book, we also produced live reading videos featuring excerpts from each of our stories, and we got Gio Gahol and Gab Pangilinan to help us out! We made those videos available to our readers last month, and now you can have access to them too!

Relive your Summer Crush feelings over and over again with these short videos, and don’t forget to share the love! We can never get enough of our live readers, anyway, right?

You Only Need Reminding by Jay E. Tria

Almost There by Tara Frejas

Ocean Eyes by Six de los Reyes

Summer Crush is available on Amazon and print-on-demand.

We’d love to hear what you think about our very first collaboration project! Please leave a rating/review of Summer Crush on Amazon and Goodreads when you can–it will be greatly appreciated!

Special thanks once again to Gio Gahol and Gab Pangilinan, who made time for us for this mini project. May this not be the last! <3 We love you!

Here, have my feelings. All of them.

Okay, I know… I know. It’s been three weeks since the #romanceclass April Feels Day–I should have gotten over it by now, moved on and such… but guess what? It’s not happening. Nuh-uh.

All because the live readings for Waiting in the Wings happened.

So here I am, writing this post to try and process my feelings one by one. There will be more ~processing posts, by the way, because more things happened after April 30 and I just…

Why yes, I’ve been finding the need to do this for three weeks now.

Before I wordvomit around this space, you need to know these three things:

  1. Waiting in the Wings is my most personal work yet,
  2. A huge chunk of Ramon’s personality was inspired by Gio Gahol, and;
  3. Pio Alvez in my headcanon looks and sounds like Fred Lo.
