Chicago Filipino American Film Festival

The Chicago Filipino-American Film Festival (CFAFF) is an annual cultural event celebrating the diverse narratives of the Filipino-American community.

Organizing a Filam Film Festival in Chicagoland first came in 2010. It debuted in 2012, featuring the film Boundary, directed by Benito Bautista.

Through screenings, discussions, and workshops, CFAFF fosters dialogue and collaboration, enriching the cultural conversation. With a commitment to empowering emerging talents, CFAFF continues to evolve, amplifying voices and promoting cultural understanding.

However, CFAFF has not realized its goal of emulating the vision of the Filipino New York Film Festival.

Filipino films are still being screened at the Gene Siskel Film Center, even if they are not necessarily included as part of the Chicago Filipino-American Film Festival.
