A 150-seater cinema facility established through the collaboration of the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) and the city government of Davao, headed by Mayor Sara Z. Duterte-Carpio.

The Cinematheque was designed, and is destined to be, an alternative and accessible venue for classic and contemporary Filipino films, both mainstream and independent, for state-of-the-art foreign films sourced through the FDCP’s Film Cultural Exchange Program with other countries, and for workshops and symposiums on directing, scriptwriting, editing, cinematography, and all other aspects of filmmaking.

It was inaugurated last June 29, 2012 during the 1st Sineng Pambansa National Film Festival, attended by FDCP Chairman Briccio G. Santos, Mayor Sara Z. Duterte-Carpio, French Ambassador to the Philippines Gilles Garchon, Cannes Best Director Brillante Mendoza, Danilo Brocka, brother of the late Director Lino Brocka, and a host of invited local celebrities and select guests from the local government, representatives from the film industry and film enthusiasts from Davao.

The new Cinematheque is located in a 173-square meter lot along Palma Gil Street in downtown Davao City beside the Pasalubong Center near People’s Park. It is the second of its kind to be constructed in the country and the first in Mindanao. The first one was the 25-seater cinema built in Baguio City which was unveiled in September 2011. The facility will be operated by FDCP for a period of 50 years.
