The Los Angeles Philippine International Film Festival (LAPIFF) made its debut on the second weekend of Filipino American History Month from October 7th thru October 9th at Cinemark X D Theaters inside the South Bay Pavilion. FilAm Creative was a Community Sponsor where our members volunteered, introduced, hosted and moderated Q&As throughout the film festival’s weekend screenings of world premieres, special screenings, short films, documentaries, animated films and student films – local, nationwide and abroad.
Below is the announcement of the first winners of LAPIFF 2016 by co-founders Abe Pagtama, Jush Andowitt and Fe P. Koons:
The Mission of the Los Angeles Philippine International Film Festival (LAPIFF) is to work for the advancement, development and to showcase Filipino Filmmakers/Artists around the world through film, providing the global community of entertainment professionals and film goers with consistent annual screening events and workshops. LAPIFF provides charitable scholarships and a forum where Filipino/Artists can be recognized for their gifts, have open discussions about their movies and connect with industry professionals for understanding on production, distribution, representation and acquisition.
The weekend event was covered by international television channels, local newspapers and the local cable stations subscribed to by the Filipino American community based in Los Angeles as well as across the United States.
