UPSTREAM Partners with GMovies to Set the Scene for a New Cinema Experience for Filipinos

I miss going out, dining at my fav resto, stroll sa mall, and watching movies in cinemas. But with this awful COVID19 pandemic, very limited ang access sa lahat ng yan, actually off-limits pa nga diba? besides the fact na pabago-bago ng protocols, nakakatakot pa din ang maexpose sa virus. Kaya kami, we do our faveorite things na lang at the comforts of our home.

We cook at home, or pa food-deliver if nakakaluwag-luwag, and yes, movie marathon is a good way to spend time with the family, or just a leveled up "me time" and enjoy at the same time.

Have you heard about UPSTREAM? I learned more about it today on the recently concluded presscon for GMOVIES. It's a Transactional Video on Demand (TVOD) platform created by Filipinos, for Filipinos. Oh huh, proudly Pinoy! 

UPSTREAM x GMOVIES 14 on 14 Presscon

UPSTREAM has recently partnered with the country’s leading digital booking platform for on-ground and online cinematic experiences, GMovies, to introduce a new and affordable viewing experience to Filipinos anywhere they are in the world.

UPSTREAM, in partnership with GMovies, will showcase proudly Filipino-made films alongside international films and more mainstream titles in line with its objective to give local producers a space to ensure that their content reaches a wider audience. With easy access and affordable ticket prices, more viewers have the chance to discover a whole new world of films with their families right at home.

Today, UPSTREAM and GMovies formally launched with a special offer that any movie lovers cannot turn down – 14 films for 14 days for only P1 each! For the price of one ticket, films can be streamed together by the entire household.

The 14 on 14 line-up will include a string of classics from Regal, an entertainment firm known to produce an eclectic mix of films ranging from trendy, campy, serious, and art house: 

       Shake, Rattle and Roll 3

       Ang Babaeng Putik

       The Debutantes


       Woke Up Like This

       Bala at Lipstick

       Starzan: Shouting Star of the Jungle

       Daddy's Little Darlings



       Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

       Inday Bote at ang Mahiwagang Bibe

       Sinungaling Mong Puso

       Bihagin: Bilibid Boys


By streaming these films, UPSTREAM aims to relive the nostalgia of pre-internet days where movies aren't highly targeted and calculated, and producers used a wide net approach in creating films that catered to every kind of Filipino there was. While these 14 films may not be the best that the cinema of our past can offer, their varied themes and stories can collectively show us the endless possibilities of where Philippine cinema can go. Perhaps, with UPSTREAM, audiences can rediscover a whole new world of unique and varied Filipino films.

Moreover, UPSTREAM, in partnership with GMovies will be the exclusive streaming venue for QCinema from November 27 to December 6 and the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) 2020 starting on December 25.  From December 7 to 24, viewers can also take a trip down memory lane as UPSTREAM shows MMFF classics and favorites leading up to this year’s festival grand premiere.
