On the 28th of April in 2023, FilAm Creative was invited into Lionsgate’s inner sanctum for a special screening of Blindspotting’s Filipino-centric episode (Season 2, Episode 4 of “By Hook or By Crook”), featuring a cameo by Dante Basco (Rufio from “Hook”) along with P-Lo, Guapdad 4000 and Ruby Ibarra.
It was incredible to see an episode produced especially for the Filipino/Bay Area community (and beyond).

After the screening, April Absynth joined FilAm Creative including filmmaker Patricio Ginelsa (“Lumpia With A Vengeance”) and Timothy Granadores (“13 Reasons Why”) to celebrate the rest of the night.
Special thanks to Mark Labella and Bianca Nepales for organizing, Yong Chavez for moderating, Rafael Casal and Daveed Diggs for being so generous to the community and Jollibee for sponsoring the event.
