    Positive reviews of “Dito at Doon” have whetted the appetite of Pinoys abroad who are now clamoring that the TBA film be available for streaming at their location.

    “Dito at Doon” is currently available for streaming in the Philippines on five online platforms: KTX.ph, Cinema ’76 @ Home, iWant TFC, Upstream at Ticket2Me. It is the first local movie to be available in five platforms and is currently enjoying good word-of-mouth after exceeding producer TBA’s expectations.

    Its ending has also left viewers wondering if there is a sequel. According to producer Daphne Chiu, it will all depend on how the movie is received by viewers.

    “Kung may part 2 man or kung may spin-off, it’s always our practice with TBA, it’s always galing sa audience,” she said.

    “If we hear ‘yung clamor, and maibalik ‘yung unang naipundar – for you know film is essentially a business – if maibalik na ‘yung naipundar, and of course, there is always the possibility of creating another one.”

    Director JP Habac said he will welcome the chance to work with the cast again.

    “Kung ako tatanungin, I really want to do another project with this team, kasi, walang halong biro, sobrang sarap katrabaho ng buong cast. And parang … nakaka-excite lang. Sana sana,” he said.

    Set during these pandemic times, this relatable Janine Gutierrez-JC Santos romance movie is set during the current pandemic. “Dito at Doon” revolves around political science graduate Len (Janine) and her online/offline frenemy Caloy (JC). Len works from home, and is someone who fights for things she loves and believes in. Caloy, on the other hand, is a front liner and has a perspective that’s different from Len’s.

    “Dito at Doon” also features host and stand-up comedian Victor Anastacio and theater actress Yesh Burce, with the special participation of Janine’s mom Lotlot de Leon.
