“Prinsesa” to screen in world’s-largest LGBT film festival

Posted on May 31st, by prinsesafilm in Media, News, Screenings. Comments Off on “Prinsesa” to screen in world’s-largest LGBT film festival

San Francisco, CA – The short film “Prinsesa,” inspired by a traditional dance of the Philippines and created entirely by volunteers, has been selected for Frameline 38, the world’s oldest and largest LGBT film event. The screening will take place at the Victoria Theater in San Francisco at 11am on Sunday June 22.
“Prinsesa” is a short film about Rey (Patrick Silvestre), a Filipino-American father who recalls the traditional Philippine folk tale “Singkil” to his children, hoping to calm them after a small earthquake. But his young boy, Jojo (Lucas Javier), seems to identify more with the princess in the myth rather than the prince. This creates an awkward conflict for Rey, who is now having his own masculinity and parenting skills questioned by his pals.
The film was independently produced and crowdfunded by community donors. The film crew are all volunteers … Read More »

The Prinsesa Kickstarter Campaign

Posted on January 13th, by prinsesafilm in News. Comments Off on The Prinsesa Kickstarter Campaign

We’re so excited to announce the start of our Kickstarter Campaign to raise funds to complete Prinsesa. Our film has been invited to screen in San Francisco in March 2014, but we need some funds for completion – and we need them by February 14, 2014 or we lose that spot. Specifically, we need this $3,500 for:

MUSIC SCORE – We have an Emmy-award winning composer (Mitchell Covington) and amazing kulintang musicians from Likha standing by, ready to record the music for our film. But we need money to rent the studio space and gear.
COLOR GRADING – at the moment, we do not have a colorist who will volunteer their time to grade the film for final screening.
FILM FESTIVAL FEES – This is the big expense. We hope that our film will be good enough to get into festivals, … Read More »
