Celeste Lapida

Celeste Lapida

Celeste Lapida (aka Jared Joven) is a filmmaker and performance artist from Manila. She is devoted to telling stories of the reimagined queer experience, presenting her characters in situations they can best look out for each other and placing at the center, of both her films and performances (live or virtually, with or without bangs), gender and the expression of femininity. She has held a passion for visual arts the moment she started listening to women.

With Kaj Palanca, she directed the 2016 QCinema short film Contestant #4.
