Brooklyn Park Pictures presents The "Thank You" Girls, a film by Charliebebs Gohetia (does this sound like a real name to you? Anyway, he's the editor of Foster Child, Twilight Dancers, and Slingshot and writer of Daybreak and one of the four founders of UP CINEMA). World Premiere schedules: July 2008 / Davao, August 2008 / Manila (during the Cinemalaya, I assume). The 'Thank You' Girls is a Visayan film with a gay lingo twist. Tired of losing in all the beauty competitions in Davao City, five dysfunctional gay beauty pageant veterans decide to travel north to Cagayan de Oro City, in the island of Mindanao. Their mission: to conquer the grandest competition of beauty, personality and brains in the whole province. They believe that being city dwellers, gays in the province will never stand a chance against them.

Hints of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert here and there, but I'm sure it'd be fun to watch.
