Due to public demand, the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) has extended this year’s Pista Ng Pelikulang Pilipino.
Set to run originally for a short 16 days, the festival has been extended to 44 days — from Oct. 31 to Dec. 13.
“With the extension of PPP4 and the expansion of its calendar of screenings and events, the FDCP hopes to encourage more viewers and stakeholders to support the film festival that will give 100% of gross proceeds to the producers of participating full-length films,” said FDCP Chairperson and CEO Liza Diño.
“We are listening to our subscribers, producers, and the rest of our stakeholders in order to make the 4th Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino a more inclusive solidarity event. Aside from announcing the PPP4’s extended duration, we are also pushing forth the ‘Sama All’ spirit by offering a wide array of events to further promote Philippine Cinema, encourage more viewers to learn about the art of filmmaking, and boost the thriving PPP community,” she added.
