Welcome to Pinoy X-Philes
Pinoy X-Philes is a Philippine-based fan group of The X-Files founded in 2003.
Its conception can be traced as far back as 1998, when a small number of Filipino fans of The X-Files decided to form a web-based group after meeting each other online in X-Files forums.
They called themselves as Pinoy X-Philes. Meetups, discussions about the show, and episode marathons were the main staple of the fledgling group. It was only a matter of time before the group became bigger, with members coming from different parts of the Philippines. Eventually the group was renamed as The Filiphiles.
Soon after, The Filiphiles caught the attention of the New Worlds Alliance – a start-up Manila-based umbrella organization responsible for bringing together different Filipino fan groups of the science fiction and fantasy genre. The Filiphiles was invited to become a member of the Alliance, along with three other X-Files fan groups, namely: Club X Manila, The Basement Office, and X-Flips. It was decided thereupon that the four small X-Files fan groups be merged into one big group in preparation for the first-ever Philippine Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention in 2003 organized by the New Worlds Alliance. Thus, the Pinoy X-Philes – the original name of the first group – was born.
