The 2012 Chicago Filipino American Film Festival (CFAFF) opens Friday night, November 2nd, with an opening ceremony at 7:00 pm and afterward the showing of Boundary, a feature length film directed by Benito Bautista (MANILA SKIES - CFAFF 2009). Boundary has won Best Film under the NETPAC (Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema) category at the Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival in 2011 and received a Special Mention Award at the 2011 Cinemanila International Film Festival under the Southeast Asian Films category.

Friday starts a 3 day event that takes place November 2-4, 2012 at the historic Portage Theater here in Chicago. The festival began in 2003 and has been held at other locations but recently Portage Theater has been it's home. It's a wonderful representation of the cultural diversity here in Chicago and it's a great introduction to an internationally critical and recognized festival that showcases undiscovered talent from the U.S. and the Philippines. It's a rich and colorful cinematic experience that will educate and enrich you with the Filipino community and it's vibrant culture.

Tickets ($10 per film) can be purchased at Portage Theater
