Christian Bautista and Julie Anne San Jose are occupying Kia Theater to offer a unique and fresh combination on Nov. 11 with When Christian Meets Julie Anne, a concert to highlight each of their unique vocal power, individually and together.

DreamStar Events Management and GMA Network bring back Julie Ann to the venue of her first solo concert, this time with fellow singer/concert artist Christian. The two will have a back-to-back performance.

Christian and Julie Anne are both products of singing searches after which they carved their niches on the music and concert scene.

Christian is best known as Asia’s Romantic Balladeer while Julie Anne is dubbed as Asia’s Pop Sweetheart.

With their string of achievements both in the local and international scene, concertgoers can expect nothing more than a world-class act in their first concert together.

Marc Lopez is the musical director with Marvin Caldito directing the performance.

“I am very honored na makasama si Christian sa concert. This is another memorable experience for me to share the stage with Asia’s Romantic Balladeer. Another milestone ito sa aking career,” Julie Anne says.

Christian is equally excited to be sharing the concert stage with Julie Anne for the first time.

“She’s a great singer and performer. I’m equally excited to be sharing the stage with her. Naku, mapapasayaw na naman ako niyan knowing her as a good dancer too,” quips Christian.

Tickets to When Christian Meets Julie Anne are now available at Ticketnet.

Indie film about jailed drug dealer is featured in QCinema 2016.

Cinephiles are in for an emotional connection in the light of the ongoing war on drugs with the movie Best. Partee. Ever.. 

Howard “HF” Yambao’s entry to this year’s QCinema International Film Festival (QCinema) Circle Competition stars ABS-CBN talent JC de Vera who plays Mikey, a gay drug pusher from the affluent class who spends five years in a city jail while waiting for his case to be decided.

Inside the prison, Mikey attempts not to adapt to the culture and stratification among inmates. But eventually, Mikey becomes a “mayor” (cell leader) to a group of gay inmates called “Gang-da.”

Together with this group, Mikey learns how to survive the dangers of several gang riots, the mundane jail life, and the decay of human dignity.

At the QCinema’s press conference, Yambao said the movie could serve as an instrument to help raise awareness about drugs.

“I guess this is how we can help the war on drugs, by educating the youth. This was my experience when I was younger,” he shared.

Best. Partee. Ever. is the first indie film of Yambao, who studied filmmaking, digital filmmaking, and music video production at the New York Film Academy.

He apprenticed under filmmakers Brillante Mendoza and Armando Lao, both staunch supporters of social realism and found story filmmaking approach in the Philippines.

Prior to filmmaking, he worked as a TV commercial director for government advocacies, a TV segment producer, and a PR and marketing consultant.

Coming from the upper-middle class, Yambao offers to critique and show the diverse dilemmas and issues of the class he belongs to.

QCinema 2016 is ongoing until Oct. 22 at Ayala TriNoma, Gateway Cinemas, Robinson’s Galleria, and UP Town Center.
