2008 marks the 5th annual Chicago Filipino American Film Festival (CFAFF) and continues our mission to highlight the works of Filipino American filmmakers, as well as leading cinema from the Philippines.
It also marks exciting new developments in the evolution of one of the largest Filipino film festivals in the country:
- New venue!
Because of our growth, the festival is moving to the 1,300-seat Portage Theater, which just finished a multi-million-dollar renovation to restore its original grandeur.
- Musicians and filmmakers!
We’re hosting a contest to find the best original music video created by Filipino musicians or filmmakers. Details are available in the Submissions page.
Tune in to CFAFF podcasts now to hear insightful and entertaining interviews with Filipino American filmmakers.
This year’s 5th annual Festival promises to be our best yet. So mark your calendars, spread the word and come join us November 7-9, 2008!
