We are excited to bring on to APEX Arnel Pineda, the lead sing of Bay Area band, Journey, and Ramona Diaz, filmmaker of the documentary DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’ featuring Arnel Pineda which screened in San Francisco last month as the closing night film of the San Francisco International Film Festival. We share an intimate interview with the two of them as well as tape from the red carpet.
We also welcome Joël Tan from YBCA to talk about the Center’s New Filipino Cinema program which opens on Thursday. This five-day event features 29 films and 24 U.S. premieres from one of the most exciting independent film scenes in the world. It also features the Indie-Pino Underground Music Fest, an afternoon of live music by independent and underground Filipino-American bands from around the nation, programmed by the big papa of PiNoisePop, Jesse Gonzales.
With Hosts No-No Girl and RJ.
