FilAm Creative calls on Fil-Ams to support Singafest Asian Film Festival
FilAm Creative, an organization advancing Filipino-Americans in entertainment and media, will be an industry sponsor for Bigfoot Entertainment’s Singafest Asian Film Festival Sept. 29-Oct. 2. Singafest is a new international film festival celebrating Asian cinema premiering at the historic Bigfoot Crest Theater in Westwood Village, Los Angeles.
“We’ve had a very successful 2011 establishing FilAm Creative with events that exceeded our expectations,” said FilAm Creative co-chairman, Ed Mallillin.
“Bigfoot has been a great partner this year. They’ve shown an incredible amount of support to FilAm Creative and we’re thankful for an event like this to showcase what Fil-Am filmmakers are capable of. Fil-Ams need to support our own artists more and that starts here at Singafest.”
Three FilAm Creative members will have their films screened during the New Faces/New Frontiers: The Singafest Short Film Program on Sat. October 1st at 11am at the Bigfoot Crest Theater. They are the documentary Lyrical Empire: Hip-hop in Metro Manila by Mark Villegas, Asian-American identity film Spunk by Patrick Epino and the intense horror/thriller D-volution by Walter Boholst. The program is co-sponsored by FilAm Creative and CAPE (Coalition of Asian Pacifics In Entertainment.)
