FDCP Disowns Connections with FILM ASEAN

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC

Please be informed that pursuant to Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) Board Resolution No. 008-2016, thus, this agency sends this Notice to the Public.

The Film Development Council of the Philippines is the sole agency that is empowered by law to enter into agreements with local and foreign/international agencies on matters relating to film or the cinematic arts. It does so in accordance with its mandate and through the Department of Foreign Affairs.

It has come to our attention that a non-government organization called Film ASEAN (Southeast Asia Film Development Foundation, Inc.) has represented itself as working with or in association with FDCP on foreign film festivals and other related film activities. This agency disowns any such representation.

Agreements entered into by the said organization are thus illegal or have no force and effect. Please be guided accordingly.
