PHLPost issues special stamp to mark 100 years of PH Cinema
The Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost) and the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) issued a commemorative stamp called “SANDAAN - Celebrating 100 Years of Philippine Cinema.”
According to PHLPost, the commemorative stamp depicts the logo of SANDAAN appearing on a stylized movie ticket, highlighting the dates 1919-2019.

The commemorative stamp was presented by PHLPost Business Lines Manager Maximo Sta. Maria III to FDCP Chairperson Liza-Diño Seguerra, Department of Tourism Assistant Secretary Roberto Alabado III, ABS-CBN COO of Broadcast and Director Laurenti Dyogi.
