MANILA — From iWant's streaming to YouTube releases, local film outfits have been highlighting titles available online in recent weeks, as Filipinos stay home during the coronavirus lockdown.


The latest offering comes from Lockdown Cinema Club, which offers selected feature films via Vimeo on Demand. Each film will be made available for 24 hours, and can be watched in full with a minimum donation fee of P300.

The proceeds will be given to film industry workers whose livelihood have been affected by the Luzon-wide quarantine.

An online Q&A session for each film will also be held, for free, with cast or crew members being interviewed.

For Lockdown Cinema Club's first batch of offerings, the following titles will be available: Victor Villanueva's "Patay na si Hesus" (April 10), Gino M. Santos' "The Animals" (April 13), Dwein Baltazar's "Gusto Kita with All My Hypothalamus" (April 15), and Alvin Yapan's "Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwaang Paa" (April 18).
