UPFI Film Center this June 2011

School is back and the UP Film Institute is all set for an entire academic year of UPFI Film Center screenings beginning with a distinct selection of films for June 2011.

Reminisce the golden age of Philippine movies in the 1970s as Ishmael Bernal's Lagi Na Lamang Ba Akong Babae (1978) is screened on June 15, Wednesday, at 5 pm.

Commemorate Jose Rizal's 150th birth anniversary with a pair of titles based on the immortal character created by the national hero as Gerardo de Leon's Sisa (1951) is presented back-to-back with Mario O'Hara's Sisa (1999) from June 16, Thursday to June 18, Saturday.

Savor the best of French cinema as this year's French Film Festival courtesy of the Embassy of France in the Philippines holds a special engagement for the premiere state university from June 29, Wednesday to July 2, Saturday.

Currently on view at the Ishmael Bernal Gallery are photo and video works from the recent graduates of the UPFI Summer Workshops under the helm of Kiri Dalena, Frankie Callaghan, Gari Buenavista, Daemon Becker, Milo Paz and Estan Cabigas.

LGBT artists and supporters gather together on June 24, Friday for The Pink Manifesto, which aims to foster a sense of community and pride while also valuing individuality through art, music and ideas.

Outdoor photo installation features young conceptual artist Catalina Africa's Broken Pleases. Her work contemplates the origin of perceived tragedies, how moments so small and secret can deceive us with an almost elementary mockery.
