    ACCORDING to director/actress Gina Alajar, if she will be given the chance to seat as one of the screening committees in the Metro Manila Film Festival, she wants a total balance on all film entries

    “Okey lang naman sa akin na may mga indie films.

    “Pero hindi ko naman idi-disregard yung mga commercial films.

    “Para balanced, di ba?

    “May apat kang movies for general patronage where the kids can watch and enjoy at meron kang apat na pang-award naman.

    “Pero nandiyan na ‘yan, e. Wala na tayong magagawa.

    “Let’s just wait and see na lang sa opening day kung ano ang magiging result ng pagbabago nila sa MMFF.”

    Direk Gina was one among those who were shocked when the final MMFF entries came out. Almost all of the film entries were indie films.

    “Actually, hindi ko alam kung ano ang trip nila. Hindi kasi ako aware sa ano ba yung bagong criteria nila o kung ano ang panlasa nila ngayon.

    “Siguro meron lang silang gustong patunayan this year.

    “Gusto nilang makita kung uubra sa audience ngayon yung mga napili nilang mga entries, which are all indie fi lms.

    “Ngayon, kung nag-fail sila sa intensiyon nilang ito, for sure hindi na nila uulitin yun.

    “I’m not saying na may ginawa silang mali or anything. They just want to prove something at tingnan natin kung magwu-work yun.”

    The famous director’s film titled

    “Ang Pastor” with Philip Salvador and Rosanna Roces was one of the entries but didn’t make it in the final round.

    “Pero itong movie namin ni Ipe, tapos na tapos na siya.

    “Bago pa man ang deadline noong November 2, buo na yung movie.

    “Hindi lang kami siguro sinuwerteng makapasok sa Magic 8.”

    “In fairness naman sa mga pumasok, mukhang magaganda lahat ng mga stories nila.

    “I guess, isa sa criteria nila ay yung laman ng movie.

    “Hindi kasi sila commercial movies, like the movies of Vic Sotto or Vice Ganda.

    “I just don’t know how the audience will react to these movies, especially na ipapalabas sila on Christmas Day.”

    “Christmas kasi is a time for family to get together, lalo na ang mga bata. Gusto ng mga ‘yan na manood ng sine.

    “Ilang years na akong may movie entry sa MMFF and I know yung mga pelikulang pinapasok at hindi.

    “Lalo na ngayon, gusto ng mga bata ay comedy movies nina Vic Sotto and Vice Ganda.

    “Or kahit yung mga star-studded drama and horror movies ng Regal Films. Yung nakaka-entertain sa buong pamilya.

    “Kaya masaya ang mga producers kasi kumikita sila. Ngayon, with the entries na puro indie films, I doubt kung mari-reach nila yung target na kita ng MMFF this year.

    “Or baka naman hindi na ang kikitain ang target nila kundi ang pagpapalabas ng quality films.
