Globe Platinum Celebrates 100 Years of PH Film at Art Fair 2020
In its eighth year as the exclusive partner of Art Fair Philippines, Globe Platinum celebrates the ingenious past, present, and future of Philippine film at Art Fair 2020.
A known champion of breakthrough art, Globe Platinum has showcased the works of the most provocative artists in the Asian scene at Art Fair Philippines—from Plet Bolipata’s whimsical take on the fairytale Little Red Riding Hood in 2018 to the collaboration with Japan’s immersive art group, teamLab, last year.
Taking another step in bringing extraordinary experiences to art enthusiasts, Globe Platinum led the inauguration of the first-ever film program at this year’s Art Fair. The film program celebrated the Philippine legacy of the last 100 years through daily screening of films curated by the award-winning writer, editor, and film composer Erwin Romulo, respected film historian Teddy Co, and film critic Philbert Dy. Showcasing the diversity of Philippine cinema, the program included feature-length and short films, narrative and experimental films, documentaries, and animated films. Throughout the program, a panel of film experts and enthusiasts exchanged views on the future of the Philippine cinema.
Art Fair Philippines 2020 showcased the works of 61 finest local and foreign artists in more than 13,000 square meters of The Link, Ayala Center, Makati. Other highlights at this year’s Art Fair Philippines included an “Open Studios,” where revered artists and culture experts held workshops and demos; Julie Lluch’s “Irresistible Grace,” a dramatic modern take on the Juan Luna magnum opus “Spoliarium,” and the Visayan group political exhibit “Giatay” that depicts today’s political climate.
At the highly anticipated event, Globe Platinum customers received complimentary passes and access to an exclusive priority lane by simply showing their Platinum signal. In partnership with Art Fair Philippines, Globe Platinum continues to champion its customers’ passion for the best in arts and culture.
