The Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) is commemorating 100 years of cinema in the Philippines on 12 September 2019 through “Sine Sandaan: Celebrating the Luminaries of Philippine Cinema” as well as the issuance of commemorative stamps by the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) entitled “SANDAAN - Celebrating 100 Years of Philippine Cinema”.

PHLPost is releasing stamps, souvenir sheets, and official first-day covers for this monumental celebration. Featured on the stamp is the logo of SANDAAN appearing on a stylized movie ticket, highlighting the dates 1919-2019. The souvenir sheet presents acclaimed director and producer Jose Nepomuceno, considered by many as the “Father of Philippine Movies”. His film Dalagang Bukid was the first Filipino-produced silent film, starring Atang de la Rama and Marcellano Ilagan. Dalagang Bukid was released on 12 September 1919.

The FDCP will lead the year-long celebration of the Centennial Year of Philippine Cinema, which begins on 12 September 2019 and will culminate on 11 September 2020, per Presidential Proclamation No. 622 Series of 2018.
