IFX 2015 Draws In The International Film Community For Visit Philippines Year
The Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), the government’s arm in promoting the country as a destination for filmmaking and filmmakers, is bolstering efforts to draw in an international crowd at their annual International Film Expo. Now on its fourth year, the IFX is set to happen on June 26 to 28 at the SMX Convention Center Manila, MOA Complex, Pasay City.
“This year, we have a roster of quality production houses, film schools, equipment suppliers, service providers, and other prominent exhibitors from all over the country and the world participating in this event. We are literally a film corridor helping the Philippines make way around Asia and beyond,” remarked Briccio Santos, Chairman of the FDCP.
IFX 2015 brings together the world’s most prominent players in the film industry that will showcase the best and the latest in the global film and broadcast market today. Attending directors, producers, film and broadcast companies and professionals can expect to see more international companies to participate this year, as a section of the hall is already blocked off for the ASEAN pavilion.
Catering to the increasing demand of the film industry, a special segment about audio and video editing, broadcast equipment, cinema technologies and equipment, satellite modems and receivers, special effects and 3D technologies, studio equipment and so much more can be seen at the International Broadcast, Recording and Television Expo (IBRT).
