FDCP Sineng Pambansa Launches National Film Competition

Do you have a story that can be made into a compelling film?

If you want to join the growing ranks of the country’s young and dynamic filmmakers, many of whom have won national and international awards, now is your chance.

The Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) has launched the first National Film Competition which will reward the best screenplays, documentary proposals, and animation storyboards with substantial seed money to translate their stories into quality films for local and even foreign exhibition.

The FDCP’s mandate is to promote the growth and development of the Philippine movie industry, spread awareness and appreciation for Philippine culture and history through film, and revitalize the Philippine movie industry by creating new opportunities for aspiring filmmakers as well as generating a bigger audience for Philippine cinema by bringing Filipino films to Filipino communities everywhere.

The announcement of winners and awarding of prizes will be held either in Davao City or Cebu City in May 2012.
