Created and produced annually by FACC-Hollywood board member Edwin A. Santos, the Filipino Hollywood Actors Panel is a panel discussion and networking event featuring special industry guest panelists who represent the craft of acting across the board while shining a spotlight towards Filipino actors in Hollywood today.
Panelists discuss their explorations of the process and profession of acting; their reflections on personal experiences and artistic influences that informed and shaped their careers; their discussions of past and current projects and share valuable insights into the craft and the industry.
Audience Q&A and networking follow. Get a chance to ask our panelists questions, learn about open opportunities, and build your network.
