QCinema finds new digital home in KTX

QCinema International Film Festival is coming to KTX! 

The annual event will be happening from November 26 to December 5, 2021 with physical and online screenings, with the streaming platform as its new digital home. 

In a statement, festival director Ed Lejano shared that having the film entries available online like they did in the previous year has widened their reach with more viewers outside Metro Manila gaining access. 

“High profile film festivals from all around the world have embraced this format. Our experience last year also proves that a hybrid festival is the way to go,” he said. 

KTX is the country’s foremost digital events platform hosting the biggest ticketed, virtual shows – concerts, movie exhibitions, festivals, among many other digital experiences. 

Top honcho Enrico Santos described this partnership as something that is truly “exciting”. 

“With the inevitable and imminent shift to the digital space for appreciation and exhibition of films due to the pandemic, KTX believes that it is an exciting time to expand the already huge following of QCinema, one of the country’s foremost film festival, to the entire Philippines, and even the world,” said Enrico. 

Gian Carlo Vizcarra, head of its business development and operations, added, “We are very honored to be a part of this year’s QCinema Film Festival and we are excited to bring and tell the timely stories of our filmmakers from all over the world.”

It was announced earlier this year that six short films competing in its #QCShorts section have received production grants worth of 350,000 pesos each with ownership to film rights. 

These are Skylab by Chuck Escasa; Ampangabagat Nin Talakba Ha Likol by Maria Estela Paiso; i get so sad sometimes by Trishtan Perez; MIGHTY ROBO V by Miko Livelo and Mihk Vergara; Henry by Kaj Palanca; and City of Flowers by Xeph Suarez.

Coinciding with the physical and online screenings, QCinema is also set to hold a variety of online and offline events.
