On the festival website, the 2016 QCinema International Film Festival entry “Patay Na Si Hesus” is described as “a touching and utterly unique seriocomic take on the family road trip” with “mischievous, queer stylings.”

Meanwhile the 2016 Cinema One Originals “Baka Bukas,” about a lesbian who started falling for her best friend, is described as “a sassy romantic dramedy in warm pastels with an easy-on-the-eye cast of up-and-comers, giving audiences a refreshing look at lesbian life from a Filipina perspective.”

“Patay Na Si Hesus” and “Baka Bukas” will be shown with English subtitles.
