First Philippine Film Catalogue

It is an honor to be a part of this project.

This is a landmark project of the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) since this is the first time data on Filipino films (2007 and 2008) are published in a single publication. Included in this catalogue are one hundred twenty-four film titles : 102 mainstream and independent feature films, 4 short films and 18 projects in development or in progress.

This PHILIPPINE FILM CATALOGUE is an important step in FDCP’s objective to reach an international audience for Filipino films. The Catalogue will be distributed to international film festivals, film markets, conventions and trade missions. It was first introduced in the recently concluded 2009 Hong Kong Filmart where the FDCP reached out to worldwide buyers and distributors and festival directors and programmers.

Recent Filipino films have been called “some of the most exciting in Southeast Asia.” This catalogue demonstrates why this is so and why the diversity and dynamism of Philippine cinema deserve to be at the forefront of world cinema.

Frederick Agustin did the design concept and layout.
