UNLEASHING CREATIVE DRAGONS I BENDING GENRES I KEEPING THE INDEPENDENT SPIRIT ALIVE
Bakunawa Festival is the Philippines' first international fantastic & genre-based film, art & music festival and the longest running festival of its kind in Southeast Asia ran by volunteers without corporate sponsors. We're one of the very few festivals that continued online screenings during the pandemic years. We like fresh, new, creative, innovative films, art & music. Bakunawa is a mythical dragon-like creature in Philippine mythology that devoured moons. Because we are a genre-bending film fest, we want to flip the Bakunawa's role and we want it to instead symbolize the creative monsters inside us.
