MFI is one of the major programs under Movie Workers Welfare Foundation, Inc.

Even in the early years of its operation, MFI has proudly dedicated it’s time on improving film education that brings emphasis on building the creativity and uniqueness of each of its students. Various acclaimed local and foreign lecturers are constantly invited to conduct seminars and workshops which entice filmmakers, film enthusiasts, and various students from different universities to attend.

Aside from workshops and training in filmmaking, MFI also has a library that keeps vital data on the Philippine movie industry and its other forms. Its archive contains the largest collection of short films, classics and other artifacts that are truly rare and beyond price.

With the hopes of uplifting the state of the local cinema, MFI proudly teaches its students to produce films that are of relevance from which they could freely voice out their opinions on significant issues as well as to accentuate the importance of creating art through compelling stories that would turn into eye-opening films.
