FACINE 24's pre-festival event, a lecture/film screening/book launch by Australian filmmaker/film historian, Andrew Leavold, on October 18, 2017 at the Bayanihan Community Center in San Francisco, California: Lecture — The Hidden History of Philippine Cinema; Film Screening — A 45-minute compilation film on Philippine genre movies; Book launch — The Search for Weng Weng.

Mr. Leavold is also the recipient of this year's Gawad Sulong, Sine [forward, film], given to an individual, group or organization who/that advocates for the cause of Filipino cinema outside of the Philippines.

The event will be co-presented with Arkipelago Books.
FACINE 24's post-festival event is the Trainors Training Workshop — Promoting Cultural Literacy through Film — to be conducted by Filipino filmmaker, educator and film historian, Nick Deocampo, and held on October 23, 2017 at the City College of San Francisco. The workshop is open to educators, teachers, instructor as well as those who work with youth. Mr. Deocampo's participation and the workshop is part of the Film Ambassadors Program of the Film Development Council of the Philippines through the support of its Chair, Ms. Liza Diño-Seguerra and Executive Director, Will Fredo.

Mr. Deocampo is also the recipient of this year's Gawad Gintong Ani [gold harvest], given to a Filipino film artist for his lifetime work in Filipino cinema.

The workshop is co-presented wth the Philippine Studies Department, City College of San Francisco through its Chair Lily Ann B. Villaraza.

Both events will anchor FACINE celebration of the Centenary of Filipino Cinema, 2017-2019.

This year, FACINE will launch its new program, «Guidelines to Understanding and Appreciating Filipino Cinema» — a curriculum-like approach to attending the festival screenings with guidelines to each film entry as to its aesthetic/artistic merits, its thematic attributes and socio/cultural/historical values. The Guideline will be audience-friendly to be posted on social media and FACINE website to afford a more engaged conversation with our audience and general public. This way, FACINE believes this will enhance the audience's enjoyment of the film and expand the audience, also our market, for Filipino cinema — both from the Philippines and the Filipino diaspora.

FACINE 24: the 24th annual filipino international cine festival and competition will be held on October 20-22 at the Roxie Theater for its full-length films; and on October 19 for its Short Films Competition in a venue to be announced soon.
The festival, considered to be the longest-running festival of Filipino films outside of the Philippines, is organized by the Filipino Arts & Cinema International or FACINE.
