Two years after it was first staged in Malaysia, the 2nd ASEAN-Japan TV Festival comes to Manila this September, bringing together top TV professionals from ASEAN and Japan in three days of collaborative workshops and exchanges.
AJTVF2 is an ASEAN dialogue-partner project of the ASEAN Committee on Culture and Information and is funded under the Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF). It is also an initiative shared by Japan’s Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Internal Affairs and Communications, the ASEAN Secretariat and the ASEAN 10 Member-States.
The Festival aims to promote local programs, share experiences, introduce new technologies, build connections, and initiate ideas for future cooperation between ASEAN and Japan TV networks. It also aims to push innovation in a changing broadcast landscape challenged by the internet and other emerging technologies.
“Japanese TV has a wide range of content and technologies that all ASEAN countries can learn from and adapt to their respective markets”, says PTV General Manager Dino Apolonio, Project Manager of the Festival. “This organized exchange of ideas will be a learning experience beneficial to all participants.”
The Festival shall run from September 7 to 9, kicking off at the Seda Vertis North Hotel with a full day of Workshops for September 7, participated in by delegates from Japan and Southeast Asia, as well as, select university students from the Philippines.
A Screening and Exhibition Event will be mounted on Day 2, and the Festival will culminate in a Public Event at the Trinoma Mall Activity Center on September 9, featuring talks by TV personalities from ASEAN Member-States and Japan, and a special mini-concert with performances by Rivermaya, Julie Anne San Jose and Erik Santos, together with Japan’s Soil & Pimp Sessions and Pink Cres. Admission is free.
The People’s Television Network (PTV) is the organizer for the Philippines of the 2ND ASEAN-Japan TV Festival, with the support of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO), and the Philippine Information Agency (PIA), in cooperation with Japan’s Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) and the Broadcast Program Export Association of Japan (BEAJ).
