International Film Expo 2014: Opportunities for Partnership and Growth for Filmmakers

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The International Film Expo 2014 with a theme of  "Your Film Corridor to Asia" was held at the SMX Convention Center of the Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City last June 27 to 29, 2014. The event is one of the premier film expositions that brought together the world’s most prominent players in the film industry and showcased the best and the latest trends surrounding the global film market.

The expo features several exhibitors from all over the world and a series of symposia covering a wide array of topics about the state, challenges, and opportunities surrounding the film industry worldwide. The conference brought together international stakeholders in film that discussed critical issues affecting the film industry worldwide, present technological advances and promote education as a tool towards a future-ready film industry.

Primarily brought to us by the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP), the expo aims to make the Philippines a central hub for international film providers eying the Asian market through co-productions, partnerships, and other mutually beneficial arrangements. The expo featured reputable local and international production companies, film schools, film equipment suppliers, and other organizations like RSVP Film Studios, Black Magic Design, Array’s Technology, Inc., CMB Film Services, Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation from South Korea, just to name few. The FDCP hopes to continue developing more opportunities for partnership and growth for local and international filmmakers.

Wazzup Pilipinas was among the many media partners of the event. We are proud to support such a gathering of companies involved in the film industry.

Many should have taken advantage of the exposition as their opportunity to network with both local and international players showcasing the latest trends, development, and technologies in filmmaking in the Asia-Pacific region.

I had an opportunity to try out some equipments, immerse myself to an advance multimedia system incorporating 4D technology, witnessed how a drone helicam was operated, listened to prominent speakers during the symposium, and attended a video editing workshop during the three day event.

I swear, if I had all the time in the world, I would have stayed there all day since the topics and technologies were all very interesting.

Walking the red carpet towards the venue was the most overwhelming experience. It feels like I was in Hollywood minus all the crowd and their cheering. The IFX 2014 precedes the World Premieres Film Festival that was held for the first time this year at SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City and showcased films from 27 countries.
