Filmmakers in attendance! 

In an effort to inspire, motivate and mobilize the Filipino-American and Filipino filmmaking community, we challenged them to create short films to premiere at The Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival 2017. As a result, filmmakers of various levels of experience stepped up to share their artistic voice and storytelling. We are proud to present their efforts to all of you! -Craig Obligacion-Wilson
