Do you have a story in your mind 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 submitted by aspiring directors and scriptwriters across the country with substantial seed money to translate their stories into quality films for local and even foreign exhibition.

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