The Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) has released an official statement disowning any connection to the non-government organization called Film ASEAN (Southeast Asia Film Development Foundation, Inc.).

Film ASEAN started as an FDCP program during the chairmanship of Briccio Santos but is now operating as a private organization. The Council has clarified that there are no ties between it and the Film ASEAN and that any agreements entered into by the organization are illegal and have no effect.

“FDCP is the sole agency that is empowered by law to enter into agreements with local and foreign agencies on matters relating to film or the cinematic arts, and the Film ASEAN is in no way connected to the Council,” said Liza Diño, Chairperson and CEO of the FDCP.

“If the public is aware of any Film ASEAN transactions relating to FDCP, please let us know as soon as possible,” she added.
