200 na lang ‘pag estudyante:
Finally ay maisasakatuparan na rin ang hiling ng maraming prodyuser na ilipat ng araw ang unang pagpapalabas ng mga pelikula nila. Meaning, na mula sa Miyerkoles ay gagawin itong Biyernes.
Ang paniniwala kasi ng mga prodyuser, na kapag Miyerkoles ipinalalabas ang mga pelikula nila, hindi ito masyadong kumikita, dahil nga nasa kalagitnaan ito ng linggo, na tipong mahirap pa para sa mga tao ang maglabas ng pera.
Bukod pa sa kapag Miyerkoles ipinalabas ang mga pelikula nila, at hindi ito kumita sa unang araw, tsinutsugi agad, at hindi na umaabot ng weekend, o Sabado at Linggo, na siyang mga araw ng bonding ng pamilya, o magkakaibigan.
Ang bongga rin na ibababa na rin ang presyo ng sine, para sa mga mag-aaral, na mula sa P310, ay magiging P200 na lang sa Metro Manila, at P150 sa mga probinsya.
Heto nga ang pinadalang mensahe ng FDCP (Film Development Council of the Philippines), na pinamumunuan ni Chairman Liza Diño-Seguerra:
“Following several consultations with the film industry stakeholders and the public, the Film Development Council of the Philippines has released Memorandum Circular No. 2019-01 with Policies and Guidelines on the Thea-trical Release of Films in Philippine Cinemas.
“This [Memorandum Circular] is the culmination of FDCP’s efforts to strengthen our industry practices and level the playing field for all our stakeholders —from film producers, to distributors, to our exhibitors, and even the audience – through a transparent and fair set of guidelines that addresses the gaps that have long plagued our industry when it comes to screening films in commercial theatres.
“To push for Philippine cinema’s growth and development, new policies have been introduced via the MC which applies to both local and foreign films, including the switching of the theatrical release of local and foreign films nationwide from Wednesday to Friday to accommodate more potential movie-goers during the weekend. There will also be a minimum run-length of at least seven (7) days for every film booked for theatrical release, as well as a theater assignment guarantee for the first three (3) days to avoid movies from getting pulled out of cinemas.
“Booked films will be assigned with ‘full screens’ for the first three (3) days of their exhibition. This means there will be no screen splitting, or a double booking and exhibition for a single theatre screen.
“A fair ratio for booked Filipino and foreign films should also be observed in regular playdates to give local films a higher chance of being seen by the audience.
“To encourage watching local films at the cinemas among the youth, ticket prices for students of ages 18 years and below will now be priced at Two Hundred Pesos (P200.00) in Metro Manila and a maximum of One Hundred Fifty Pesos (P150.00) in provinces every Wednesdays.
“Meanwhile, films that have been theatrically released should only be screened to other platforms in the country after a holdback period of one hundred fifty (150) days after its first day of exhibition to maximize the movies’ revenue opportunity in local cinemas.
“After the full contents of the circular has been released in a national newspaper this June 25, the policies and guidelines will take effect fifteen (15) days thereafter.”
Well, sana nga ay maging daan ito para mabuhay nang husto ang interes ng mga manonood sa pelikulang Pilipino.
