FiliFest is the first student-organised culture festival to celebrate the Philippines. It is a collaborative effort which brings together students from across the UK, particularly those from Filipino societies from various UK universities.
Though a student-run initiative, this is an inviting and inclusive event open to all. The event aims to highlight the best of the Philippines - our food, talent, art and games.
Congratulations to our annual design winner Anna Marie Cabanlig & Roxanne Gonzales! The design is based on one of the Philippines’ famous delicacy – the Halo Halo. This is a great visual description of what FiliFest is - a place for people to mix!
For FiliFest 2019 we worked with 24 UK universities and 14 local & international Filipino businesses.
