Malaya Business Insight — 14.09.2020

With the many changes faced by the country and the rest of the world this year, the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) has been continuing its efforts in supporting, promoting, and empowering the local film industry. In the last few months, this support has come in the form of the DEAR assistance program for displaced workers during the pandemic, online film festival support, regional film schools, and more.

The Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) is wrapping up the celebration of “Sine Sandaan,” the year-long celebration of the Centennial of Philippine Cinema that kicked off in September last year.

FDCP Chairperson and CEO Liza Diño spoke about the events in store for this milestone celebration, “September marks the official closing of the 100 years of Philippine cinema. Despite the pandemic, the FDCP wanted to ensure that our efforts will meaningfully honor this once-in-lifetime event through various events, activities and programs all year round. And as we close Sandaan, we open our ‘NEXT 100’  by launching several initiatives as we look forward to a better, more sustainable and progressive hundred years.”
