Featured films:

Bampinay by Matt Abaya

Bampinay is the retelling of familiar Asian American themes, but the obvious is replaced by a campy horror film narrative. Bampinay (Tina Chilip) is a gothy AmericanAswang (Philippine Vampire) who enjoys taking advantage of naive white male Asia-philes as night approaches. She is pursued by Mahal (Samantha Chanse), a tough young vampire hunter bent on her destruction. When the two clash, they begin to see that their differences are few in their similar day-to-night struggles.

One Year by John P. Raposas

A hidden layer of a relationship is revealed during the course of a couple’s one year anniversary celebration.

Mula 3rd Avenue Hanggang sa Dulo (From 3rd Avenue to Eternity) by Sipat

Three members of youth gangs share their angst and conflicts. their wars and struggles, their damnation and eventual freedom from hopelessness. Shot in an urban poor community, the film also presents the bleak situations, cutting contradictions and discounted thrills of the people living amid abject poverty and government neglect.

Q & A with directors Matt Abaya and John P. Raposas.
Food and merchandise will be sold!


What is Baliksambayanan?
Balik meaning “Going back” and bayan meaning “home.”
Baliksambaynan means going back to the homeland.

An exposure trip where students travel to the Philippines to learn, understand, and experience first hand the daily struggles of workers, students, and other sectors. From this, we organize with the sectors and apply what we learn to our work back to the states.

We hope to see you there!
