Manila — The online entertainment platform Viddsee launched a filmmaker programme with its first efforts through a filmmaker community initiative, Viddsee Juree Awards for the Philippines.

 

With a growing Filipino audience and an expanding network of creative content producers from the Philippines, the Viddsee Juree Awards aims to bridge the gap between digital filmmaking and distribution by working closely with local film communities.

 

The initiative is supported by The Film Development Council of the Philippines.

 

“Offline events are a big deal for us, as a digital-first platform. Launching this filmmaker programme in the Philippines is even a bigger deal, having witnessed a wellspring of creativity in the Philippines. We hope to help the creative community grow, and also hope to create content together eventually,” says Viddsee co-founder Ho Jia Jian.
