The blessing of the Film Gym’s new location at 45 Malingap corner Mahiyain, Teacher Village, Quezon City, was held last Wednesday,
As the Film Academy’s department handling the educational programs, the Film Gym now has a classroom which can accommodate more than 30 students. It also has an area for the editing machines which also serves as storage of the video cameras and lighting units
Aside from Film Gym Director Surf Reyes, present during the simple affair were FAP Director General Leo G. Martinez, Director Jun Urbano, KAPPT board member Rez Cortez, actor Carlo Maceda and Nonong Reyes who owns the building.

Everyone was all praises for National Artist Eddie Romero who scaled the stairways up to the 4th floor. It seemed like Direk Eddie wanted to belie that he’s already 87 years old.
The Film Gym will soon issue a call for participants for the first workshop in the new location.
