The Diwa Film Showcase is a small community film festival in Seattle that celebrates the Filipino Spirit wherever it resides, by exhibiting independent films from the Philippine islands and beyond. Since its inaugural screening in 2014, the festival has featured diverse and insightful stories of the Philippines and the Filipino diaspora.

The showcase is spearheaded by Adrian Alarilla, a filmmaker and film scholar originally from Quezon City currently pursuing his PhD in History at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa. The festival is made in cooperation with The Filipino Cultural Heritage Society of Washington (FCHSW) to complement the annual Pagdiriwang Philippine Festival.
