International Film Industry Conference Online 2021

As the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) furthers its programs to uplift the industry with a wider reach, FDCP’s Film Industry Conference (FIC) expands as the International Film Industry Conference (IFIC). In its fifth year, the IFIC continues its aim to bring together international and local experts to share and discuss the latest trends, opportunities, platforms, and cooperation globally that producers and filmmakers can explore for the development, production, and distribution of their projects with the intent of crossing beyond local borders.

Following its success with amassing around 2000 attendees as it shifted to an online platform in 2020, the IFIC strives to provide a platform to continue the synergy of the industry by featuring experts and professionals even online this September 16-19, 2021. This event will give a platform to further explore opportunities, challenges, and new norms in the film industry as we push and thrive to move forward in a global pandemic.
