It even has blank pages for notes and doodles!

    On the following day, Michael Kho Lim—an independent film producer, contributing writer, early career researcher, and an international scholar who teaches at De La Salle University in the Philippines and Monash University in Australiawill be having a discussion about his book titled Philippine Cinema and the Cultural Economy of Distribution.

    In this book, Lim explores the complex interplay of culture and economics in the context of Philippine cinema. He compares the various aspects of mainstream and independent filmmaking, examines film distribution and exhibition systems, and investigates how existing business practices affect the sustainability of the independent sector.

    The book discussion will be held at the CCP MKP Hall, on August 4 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

    Both events are free and open to the public brought to you by CCP’s Intertextual Division and Film, Broadcast and New Media Division.
