Filipino Movies Now on HOOQ!

By Mommy Donna and Kib - October 10, 2016

I rarely watch Filipino movies.  I have my own reasons, but I'll just keep it to myself so that I won't be able to offend anyone.  I must admit that Filipino movies at the start of this century evolved in a more positive way--the story, editing, music--everything.  The dying movie industry in the Philippines was revived at the turn of the new century because movie producers started to invest on good stories which we can say are at par with international movies.  Local quality movies have been given recognition in international film festivals already and it makes me feel proud being a Filipino.

We were blessed to be invited to the second HOOQ Hangouts last September 23, 2016 at Globe Iconic Store in BGC.  This time, #LovePinoy was the theme for this event.  Piolo Pascual and Angelica Panganiban's movie "Every Breath You Take" was shown that time. 

Welcome to HOOQ Hangouts 2!

This movie is very funny!  Kib and I enjoyed this movie so much!  Watch this at HOOQ

Piolo Pascual dropped by to say 'hi' to all HOOQ subscribers during the event

Jane Cruz-Walker, Country Manager of HOOQ Philippines said that the team chose a romantic comedy movie that's guaranteed to rekindle that warm fuzzy feeling during the -ber months and for the viewers to have that "Pinoy Love" vibe.

HOOQ is the prime destination for Filipino entertainment on demand with the largest library of local movies and even TV shows such as teleseryes, comedy, and reality shows.  HOOQ was able to sign licensing deals from top movie and TV production companies such as ABS-CBN, Regal, Viva, and GMA.

BGC Ampitheatre was dressed up to look like an outdoor cinema complete with beanbags, pillows, and cushions to make the viewers comfortable, as if just watching movies from their respective homes

While waiting for the main event (movie watching), all attendees were serenaded by a live band
