MMFFP SCRIPTS DEADLINE—5 DAYS TO GO by fapweb  |  Posted in Articles  |  on Fri, May 18, 2012

It is only 5 days to go before the May 23 deadline for submission of the scripts for the possible film entries in this year’s Metropolitan Manila Film Festival (Philippines). This is the final reminder from the filmfest Executive Committee.

Inasmuch as the Execom has not yet decided to grant requests for the extension of the deadline as of presstime Friday, May 18, producers are well-advised to submit their scripts on May 23 next week.

The other requirements to be submitted are as follows:

–A letter of intent from the producer regarding his/her intention to participate in the MMFFP 2012.

–A notarized form of application to participate. (Forms are available from the MMFFP secretariat of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority and the two major producers’ organizations.)

–Entry fee of P30,000 for a screenplay. This will be non-refundable even if the entry will not be chosen.

–The film producing outfit’s Securities and Exchange Commission registration, Department of Trade and Industry and Bureau of Investments papers.

–Written confirmation of the stars and directors as proof that they are participating in the film.

–Fourteen (14) copies of the screenplay.

–Notarized affidavit of the producer to attest to the following:
a) That the screenplay has never been submitted to any other film festival.
b) That the producer conforms with the rules and regulations governing the 2012 MMFFP with an understanding that he/she shall produce the movie based on the submitted screenplay, filmography and notarized form of application to participate once selected by the Selection Committee.

As decided by the Execom, eight films will be shown simultaneously starting from Christmas Day for this year’s MMFF-P.

All entries and their P30,000 filing fees must be submitted on or before May 23 (Wednesday) at the MMFF-P Secretariat, First Floor, MMDA Building, EDSA corner Orense St., Guadalupe, Makati City
