FDCP NATIONAL REGISTRY
Created by the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), the National Registry aims to organize a veritable database of all active film and television workers, audio-visual companies, audio-visual organizations, and film festivals all over the country, and open avenues for opportunities and activities that will promote the growth and development of the local audio-visual industry and promote its participation in both domestic and world markets.
NR seeks to consolidate efforts as an empowered organization so that audiovisual workers’ voices may be heard and real action may be realized through the development of legislation and policy, education, social welfare, training, protection of intellectual property (IP), and freedom of expression, with active participation from all the sectors and stakeholders in the audiovisual industry.

Enlists individual workers in the audio-visual industry and entitles them to the many capacity-building, developmental, and policy-making programs of FDCP NR.
National Registry For Companies (NRC)
Documents government-registered and active audio-visual production companies and their workers and extends the NRAW benefits to their bonafide workers.
National Registry for Organizations & Associations (NROA)

In partnership with FDCP, duly-registered film festivals receive full technical guidance and financial assistance in their concept and execution, to promote local and regional films produced throughout the country and establish a feasible film culture and healthy film communities and audiences across the Philippines.
