In honor and recognition of Filipino films and filmmakers who made waves internationally, the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) is hosting this year's FDCP Film Ambassadors’ Night on February 9, 2018 at Sampaguita Gardens, New Manila, Quezon City.
"Our Film Ambassadors' Night is the best way to start the year. It's a special night which celebrates the triumphs of our Filipino filmmakers, especially those who brought honor to our country by winning awards various international film festivals last 2017. This is our small way of showing our appreciation for their passion and hard work," said Chairperson and CEO Liza Liza Dino.
More than eighty (80) filmmakers, actors, and production will be recognized by the FDCP for their wins from last year alone, falling under the creative, technical and performance categories.
FDCP hopes that the event will also be an opportunity for filmmakers and industry movers of different backgrounds will come together to strengthen the collaboration among the creative industries.
Aside from the long list of citations, FDCP will also name the A-listers and the Camera Obscura awardees, the highest Artistic Excellence Award given by the Agency for outstanding filmmakers from last year.
The full list of Film Ambassadors will be announced on January 30.
