2016 CineChavacano Festival de Película y Animación

By virtue of Ordinance 374, the 23rd of June is officially recognized as the city’s Dia de Fundacion de Chavacano to commemorate the founding and encourage the use of the Chavacano language.

For the second year, the local government is hosting the Cine Chavacano to showcase our local language through short films produced, written, and directed by homegrown filmmakers.

Love and hatred, flaw and beauty, friendship and adversary, failure and success. Now on its 2nd year, CineChavacano Festival de Película y Animación features an array of Chavacano stories, which will be screened at the Centro Latino Theater Room, Paseo del Mar from June 20 to 23, 2016.
