PHILIPPINES—The Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) remains committed to advancing the Philippine film industry with the conduct of this year’s International Film Industry Conference (IFIC) from November 20 to 21 through an in-person conference at Novotel in Quezon City with simultaneous broadcast via Zoom.
In partnership with QCinema International Film Festival and Full Circle Lab Philippines, the 7th edition of IFIC continues to create an avenue for filmmakers, students, and seasoned professionals to engage with industry experts and discuss the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities that they can explore for the development, production, and distribution of their talents and projects.
This year’s conference will feature a series of free public sessions on relevant topics including film restoration, the role of social media in film festival marketing, the significance of post-production in the era of streaming, the power of international co-production in Asia, and the dynamics of distribution with sales agents and distributors.
In an effort to bridge the gap between the Philippine film industry and the international market, the IFIC will facilitate a roundtable discussion with the members of the Asian Film Alliance Network (AFAN) discussing the vital role of unity and collaboration within Asian film communities.
“The FDCP is proud to once again host the International Film Industry Conference (IFIC), offering our industry stakeholders great opportunities to expand their knowledge, grow their expertise, and absorb high value insights from exceptional speakers from both the country and from all over the world,” FDCP Chairman and CEO Tirso Cruz III said in a statement.
“This event exemplifies the strong conviction of the FDCP in growing our beloved Philippine Film Industry to be at par with international standards and best practices.”
