The recently launched, Filipino-made streaming service Upstream will be donating its proceeds to victims of the recent typhoons.

The said streaming service, led by filmmaker Erik Matti and producer Dondon Monteverde, has pledged 100% of the money gained from its launching project, “14 on 14,” to Ayala Foundation Inc.’s Project Pananagutan.

“With many of our fellow Filipinos hit by storm [Ulysses], Upstream would like to donate all the proceeds of our launching project #upstream14on14 to the victims of this disaster,” Matti announced on Instagram yesterday, Nov. 17.

Upstream’s said project allows users to watch 14 Filipino movies in 14 days for only P1 per film. The streaming service was launched last Saturday, Nov. 14.

The project’s movie lineup consists of Regal classics “Shake, Rattle and Roll 3,” “Ang Babaeng Putik,” “The Debutantes,” “Dahas,” “Woke Up Like This,” “Bala at Lipstick,” “Starzan: Shouting Star of the Jungle,” “Daddy’s Little Darlings,” “Rakenrol,” “Diliryo,” “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow,” “Inday Bote at ang Mahiwagang Bibe,” “Sinungaling Mong Puso” and “Bihagin: Bilibid Boys.”

Upstream, together with Globe Telecom, has partnered with the Metro Manila Development Authority to air the upcoming films of this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival. Each film under the annual December festival will be priced at P250.  /ra
