Isyu ng approval ng IATF para sa tv at movie industry, lumalala
SHOW-MY - Salve V. Asis (Pilipino Star Ngayon) - May 25, 2020 - 12:00am

Kailangan ba talaga ang approval ng Inter-Agency Task Force On Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) ang guidelines for TV and movie industry?

Nagko-kontrahan sa kasalukuyan ang Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP)  chaired by Liza Diño and Philippine Motion Picture Producers Association (PMPPA) na ang chair person naman ay si Malou Santos.

Ginigiit ng FDCP na kailangan ng approval pero sinabi naman ng PMPPA na hindi na.

Inulit pa ng FDCP sa kanilang statement na “Under both MECQ and GCQ conditions, Film, TV, and Music Production have been allowed to operate on a 50% capacity.

“Pending approval from the IATF-EID on the submitted Film And Audiovisual Production Shoot Guidelines On The Risk-Based Public Health Standard for COVID-19 Mitigation, the FDCP undertook to adopt interim or provisionary guidelines as the Film and Audiovisual sector gradually opens up, and business starts to commence starting May 16, 2020, under Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine and General Community Quarantine areas.

“On May 16, 2020, the FDCP issued Memorandum No. 6 on the Interim Guidelines on the Safety Protocols for the Conduct of Film and Audiovisual Production Shoots to Mitigate Covid-19. This is to make sure that productions nationwide who are planning to conduct business activities are well informed and guided by safety and health measures issued by the government.

“On May 18, 2020, the FDCP officially received a copy of the Safety Protocols related to COVID-19 submitted by the Interguild Alliance, a community-based network of various groups representing different relevant sectors in film, television, and advertising. FDCP has reviewed the same and endorsed the document to the Department of Health (DOH) on May 19, 2020, for the agency’s consideration.

“As of today, May 22, 2020, the FDCP is closely working with the DOH on the final draft of the COVID-19 Safety and Health Guidelines for the Film and Audiovisual Industry.

“Meanwhile, FDCP’s Memorandum Order No. 6 on the Interim Guidelines On Safety Protocols for the Conduct of Film And Audiovisual Production Shoots to Mitigate Covid-19 shall take effect from May 16- May 31 or until the final guidelines from the FDCP and DOH are approved by the IATF-EID,” bahagi ng statement na nakapirma si Ms. Liza.

Sa statement naman ng PMPPA, sinabi nilang “Finally, in an effort to seek clarity, no less than Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque declared – in the presence of IATF members DILG Secretary Eduardo Año, DTI Sec. Ramon Lopez, DND Secretary Delfin Lorenzana, Secretary Carlito Galvez, DSWD Secretary Rolando Bautista, and DOH Secretary Francisco Duque at the Malago Clubhouse in Malacañang while awaiting the arrival of PPRD – that protocols for the film industry do not need the approval of the IATF, before the same may be used/implemented.”
