It has been a while since we’re able to sit in the theaters and cinemas to enjoy new movie releases. And as much as we miss the crowd and the pleasant aura it brings, admittedly, we’d have to wait a little more until we can set foot inside the room again.

However, the best news is that GMovies, the leading online ticketing platform, and UPSTREAM.PH, a new online transactional video on demand (TVOD) platform’s partnership has been the prime alternative source of entertainment, especially for the string of new releases we won’t be able to see on the big screen.

The most endearing part is we can still sit back, relax, and binge-watch from the comfort of our homes these fresh titles, movies, shows, documentaries, and streaming media, off the festival circuit, arthouse films, and local indie movies we’ve never seen before.

Each month, they add a brand-new lineup of international and local titles so you can have something new to look forward to, including the 2019 award-winning local movie, Cleaners.

In this anthology coming-of-age film, director Glenn Barit navigates the trying times of assigned cleaners in a rural catholic high school during the noughties. These students struggle with different societal pressures of being clean, proper, and pure while they discover that the world is dirty and superficial, to begin with. The movie, starring Ianna Taguinod, Leomar Baloran, Julian Narag, Carlo Mejia, Gianne Emira Rivera, Allan Gannaban, Charise Mabbonag, and Andrei Marquez, is now on UPSTREAM.

The strong social media anticipation for Cleaners grows out of the movie’s off-kilter yet distinctive cinematography process shown in the trailer. The team behind the film uses 30,000 photocopied materials and funky highlighters to create a retro stop-motion animation as it brings together relics of a bygone era such as awkward jeje speak and GM texts while the local emo anthem, Typecast’s Will You Ever Learn, plays in the background. In fact, Cleaners has garnered a Famas Award for Best Screenplay, five “Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino” awards including Best Picture and Best Director, among others, and three awards, including Best Picture, in the QCinema International Film Festival.

To watch the film, you just need to download the GMovies app on your smartphone or visit gmovies.ph, select the movie, tap the “Pay” button and choose your payment option, click stream now on UPSTREAM, then sit back. For a one-time payment, the entire household can even see it together for five days.

Excited? Aside from Cleaners, check out UPSTREAM’s roster of drama, action-thriller, documentary, coming-of-age, and international films you can book and watch (in five devices!):
