I am glad to share with you a new monthly observance that puts the spotlight on Philippine Cinema. Through Proclamation No. 1085, President Rodrigo Duterte declared September as Philippine Film Industry Month, ensuring the celebration of Philippine Cinema annually throughout the country.
The Presidential Proclamation, signed on February 3, stated, «There is a need to recognize the invaluable contribution and sacrifices of all stakeholders and sectors of the film industry, as well as provide avenues to showcase and celebrate the achievements and progress of the discipline of film and filmmaking.”
This is a landmark proclamation as it officially designates a whole month for our country to give gratitude for the efforts of industry members, celebrate PH Cinema’s accomplishments, propagate the love and appreciation for Filipino films, and pay tribute to the industry’s legacy.
