Pelikulove is a fusion from the Filipino word “Pelikula” meaning film but expanded to mean as a conveyor of all forms of arts and culture AND “Love” universally defined as an intense feeling of deep affection all-embracing for self, family, neighbor, country, humanity, environment and all of creation; love for truth and discourse for growth. Because we believe you cannot really change anything without falling in love.
Thanks to the ever-developing technology of the internet, the world opened and became not just an information superhighway but a hyperconnected place. However, we’re also seeing a growing need to look inwards else we get carried away by the next Netflix, Masterclass, or any other pervading culture. Isn’t it high time we make one of our own?
Enters Pelikulove, a startup multi-art online portal envisioned to help build and strengthen Filipino creative communities primarily through online training programs, fora for connectivity, and production showcases to provide space for the Filipino voice, specially new works, and new perspectives not often seen or heard in mainstream circuits. We aim to nurture an environment of openness and critical thinking that fosters creativity, progressive-thinking, collaboration, support, and healthy discourses both on- and offline. Following social entrepreneurship principles, we hope to build a community that is inclusive and sustainable.
