International Film Expo – IFX 2012 Davao City

The Film Development Council of the Philippines announced the holding of the first ever International Film Expo or IFX in Davao City. It will be held at the Marco Polo Hotel from June 25 to 29 in cooperation with the City of Davao and the Davao Chamber of Commerce and Industry. With the theme “The Future has Arrived” the expo will bring together leaders from local government units, representatives from foreign embassies, filmmakers, various industry suppliers, and key people from broadcast networks, cinema chains and film productions studios. Davao was selected as venue for this pioneering event because of its breathtaking environs and its status as a major economic center in the southern part of the Philippines.

Highlighting the expo is the Film Market that intends to establish the Philippines as a regional hub for filmmaking and for the City of Davao to be recognized as a potential location for film shoots. The organizing team also aims to make the Philippines the trendsetter in field of cinema by being at the forefront of the latest trends, developments and technologies.

An international symposium has also been programmed covering the following topics: technological advances in movie making, location destinations, and programs for education and training: trends in Asia. International resource persons and guests will participate in the symposium. The delegates, therefore, will have the opportunity to compare notes and keep abreast of the goings on in the industry outside the country. Participants will also be given a tour of the different areas in Davao to entice them do their next film there.

The IFX will also serve as the perfect venue for members of our local film community – filmmakers, crew, creatives, producers and the like – to showcase their works and their services to the world through films screenings, product presentations and demos.

Ultimately, the International Film Expo Davao 2012 sets out to bolster filmmaking in the region and to make the Philippines a major player in Asia.
