Support the development of local talents

One of our missions is to support the development of local talents in the industry. Apart from helping the local productions, we have also provided support for many films that had film shooting on Macao’s location. Those film productions such as “Return of the Cuckoo” and “Guia in Love” are the typical examples among them.

Promote film appreciation culture

MFTPA has been organsing training and learning opportunities for local people on a regular basis. Through the sharing of filmmakers from all over the world, we hope to expedite the development of the local cinema and extend it to all members of society, including secondary school and university students. The objective is to inspire our future generations to enjoy and appreciate films, as well as to provoke self-reflections on life through the cinema.

Promote the development of the local film industry

Jointly organised by the Macao Government Tourism Office and MFTPA, the International Film festival & Awards Macao, which is held in December of the year, target to establish Macao as one of the major international events and marketplaces in Asia. Moreover, it aims to help Macao build an international reputation as a culturally vibrant city that offers tourists unforgettable experiences. Also, we strive to increase recognition and contribute to establishing the international reputation to Macao’s film industry.
