Lights, Camera, Action! The Philippine Film and Audiovisual Industry


The film and audiovisual sector, along with the performing arts, are some of the hardest hit sectors of the creative economy due to the pandemic. Movie theaters, the traditional mode of film distribution, are just starting to reopen in the last few weeks.

Moreover, productions have to abide by health protocols such as holding filming in “bubbles,” a double whammy.

Like all sessions in previous days on various industries, this session starts with a state of the industry report by the Film Development Council of the Philippines, before progressing to more granular aspects of great import to industry stakeholders – contracts, distribution rights, etc
