ABOUT PINK FILM FESTIVAL 2006

The PINK FILM FESTIVAL is a non-competitive film and video festival run by non-profit groups ProGay and Mowelfund Film Institute. The PINK FESTIVAL will be offering its fourth festival in the city of Manila. Additional resources and supporters can assure its extension to other cities of the Philippines.
  
Last year, the 3rd Pink Film Festival played to full houses of students and teachers in Manila and Davao cities. The Festival with the theme IN THE PINK OF HEALTH presented short films, documentaries and full feature films from all over the world and helped raise awareness on community health and HIV/AIDS issues.
  
This year, with the theme BUILDING THE PINK NATION, we ask for more entries focused on the political and social movements of lesbians, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersexed and gender-crossing people. Stories can include LGBT rights, biopics of LGBT leaders, discrimination, legal struggles, social movements and similar depictions. This year's theme dwells on the recent successes and failures of the political and social movement in working for equality, as well as hopes for strengthening the LGBT communities in the Philippines and the whole world.
  
We still encourage educational entries with reproductive health issues, HIV/AIDS, adolescent sexuality, sexually transmitted infections and other issues that intersect with or do not depart widely from LGBT and reproductive health concerns.
  
The films must be produced by independent filmmakers, or by private studios or co-produced between governments and international agencies. Films that are made by LGBT persons but do not have the themes mentioned will likely not qualify.
  
Contemporary films and videos must be have the year of first release at least in or after the year 2002. We also seek vintage LGBT films first-screened before circa 1980 for the retrospective portion. All non-English-language entries must have subtitles or dubbing in English or the Philippine language Tagalog.
