The offices of the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) have moved to a new location (the former premises of Instituto Cervantes de Manila) on TM Kalaw Street, Ermita, Manila. The National Film Archives of the Philippines (NFAP) will also have offices in the new building.
Cinémathèque Manila, the first-ever cinémathèque in the capital, is to be situated inside the new offices as well. It contains a film museum, classrooms, a souvenir shop, and by next year, a library. As the fifth Cinémathèque in the country, joining those in Baguio, Iloilo, Davao, and Zamboanga, Cinémathèque Manila aims to serve as the institution especially dedicated to preserving and enriching the film culture and heritage in the Philippines.
The inauguration of Cinémathèque Manila and the film museum was held last December 15.
The new address for FDCP and Cinémathèque Manila is 855 T.M. Kalaw St. 1000 Ermita, Manila, Philippines. Reach FDCP at its new office numbers (02) 708-7920 and (02) 256-8331.
