The Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) was established in 2002, under the office of the President of the Philippines, to lend support to Filipino filmmakers and promote their films to local and international markets.
Five years after, the Philippine Film Export Service Office (PFESO) was created with a decidedly global perspective and objective: to promote the country as a viable and effective location site and post-production service provider in the region.
Philippines As a Production Hub
With more than 10 major film studios in the country, the Philippines has a well-established post-production infrastructure that can handle film processing, editing, color correction, visual effects, animation, among others. The industry, which brings one billion pesos to the national economy, directly employs a quarter of a million workers, whose expertise runs the gamut of creating, processing, and exhibiting films.
