The Philippines Launches Educational Indie Film Streaming Platform

Open Gov — 20.08.2022

The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) of the Philippines has funded the social enterprise “EdukSine,” which recently debuted as a streaming platform for independent Filipino films that are educational and socially significant, and will excite fans of independent cinema in the country.

“Film is a powerful tool for education by telling our stories. Once a story is told, it stays with you. Let’s keep telling our stories,” says Hector Gloria, Executive Director of EdukSine Philippines.

Through online, face-to-face, and hybrid block screening events, EdukSine features films with global impact that strengthen Filipino cultural roots and narratives. The initiative seeks to provide audiences with contextual and transformative film content, meaningful engagements, and long-term support for independent Filipino film producers, directors, actors, and film marketers. EdukSine will be a new and unusual platform for promoting indie films made by small film producers and filmmakers.
