Other members of the diplomatic corps and members of the press were also in attendance.

 Chair Liza addressed the audience by firstly introducing herself as the newly appointed Chairperson of FDCP, before expressing her goals of further strengthening the already longstanding relationship between the FDCP and the diplomatic community. “We shall continue to bring the very best of acclaimed international titles to Filipino audiences, and simultaneously, more Filipino films to international shores.”

The FDCP continues to engage with the Embassies and the Cultural arms of foreign countries in the Philippines through its Film Cultural Exchange Program, which allows for the partnership of FDCP on local foreign film festivals and the screening of respective titles at the FDCP Cinematheques.
