First of all, mixing technologies without need is most of the times a
bad idea - so if it is really the case that you can't solve all of your
issues in django, you shouldn't use it at all, but solve them in PHP.
But to be honest - I doubt that django isn't capable of solving your
for a introduction to the multitude of query-options. I doubt that your
rather simple m:n-relationship is covered there.
I myself use SQLAlchemy, and that can for sure query and filter those
