What Happened at 4th FilAm Creations’ Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival 2017 Meetup?


It was our second potluck party, but this time held at the Pilipino Workers Center (PWC) in Historic Filipinotown, Los Angeles.  On Saturday, April 22, 2017, two weeks before our filmmakers’ initiative, FilAm Creations’ 12 new short films sold out premiere screening at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival on May 3rd at the ArtShare LA, it was time to celebrate our accomplishments thus far!


There was a discussion on upcoming FilAm Creative events including Halo-Halo Headshots, a panel event with NBC, creating new content for the Bidyo Channel and an update on FilAm Creations’ second screening.


With every new meetup, more new people attend.  Thus the effective purpose of individual introductions between current members and potentially new members at our ever-growing monthly meetup group.  The challenge for next month’s meetup is to invite two new like-minded friends who share the same passions and a “Do-It-Yourself” ambition with a pro-community attitude.  Anyone who believes in our mission and supports what we do.



One of the new film projects for FilAm Creations members is the horror anthology feature.  And, the following screenwriters were announced.

  • Angelo Baetiong
  • Jeremy Balagtas
  • Kaitlyn Fae Fajilan
  • Walter Boholst
  • John Cruz and Mark Dormitorio
  • Craig Wilson


“Thank you!” to everyone who attended, brought food to share, and helped clean up the venue.  But also a BIG “THANK YOU” to the people who gave donations to help contribute to PWC, for allowing FAC to use their facility.” said FAC’s CFO Walter Talens.


FilAm Creative (FAC) is an all volunteer community organization dedicated to the advancement of Filipino-Americans in entertainment and media.
