FDCP and Intramuros Administration partner for #WeAreIntramuros Film Challenge

Combining film artistry with appreciation of heritage and history, the Film Development Council of the Philippines has partnered with the Intramuros Administration to launch #WeAreIntramuros, a 24-hour filmmaking challenge focusing cultural awareness on Filipino values.

During a Press Conference held last August 30 at FDCP’s Cinematheque Centre Manila with Intramuros Administrator Atty. Guiller Asido, Chairperson Liza Dino explained that this activity is in line with the aim to encourage more young filmmakers to explore their creativity and craft. “This challenge will surely need our filmmakers to be on their toes and make use of every resources and minute that they have. We look forward to seeing the types of films that they will be coming up with,” she said.

The goal is also to make Intramuros as a viable location for FILM or A/V production. The historical backdrop and interesting venues within the perimeters of INTRAMUROS will hopefully be highlighted by the creativity of the young participants.
