Iginiit ni Governor ER Ejercito na dapat ay maibalik na sa mga taga-industriya ang pamumuno ng MMFF. Sabi niya, "Kailangang taga-pelikula ang mag-handle ng Metro Manila Film Festival."


Pinasaringan muli ni Laguna Governor Jeorge "ER" Ejercito si Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Francis Tolentino.

Ito ay dahil sa hindi raw pag-aksyon ni Chairman Tolentino sa hinaing ni Governor Ejercito tungkol sa hindi patas na pagdi-distribute ng mga sinehan sa mga pelikulang kalahok sa taunang Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).

Si Tolentino rin ang tumatayong chairman ng MMFF.

Ayon kay Governor Ejercito, kapag gawa ng independent producers ang isang entry, kakaunti lang ang bilang ng mga sinehang ibinibigay rito.

Kaya saad ng actor-politician, “Sana sa buong Pilipinas, ang mga sinehan... dapat yung walong pelikula ay pantay-pantay ang bilang ng sinehan.

“Kagaya nga sa Metro Manila, kami ay 44 theaters naman, yung dalawang malalaking pelikula, malalaking bida, e, 100-plus [theaters].

"So, agrabyado na naman kaming maliliit na artista.”

Ito ang ikalimang taon na may entry sa MMFF si ER.

Noong 2009 at 2010 ay suporta lamang siya sa mga pelikulang Ang Panday at Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote.

Noong 2011 ay siya na ang bida sa Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story.

Nitong nakaraang taon, 2012, siya ang gumanap sa title role na El Presidente.

Ngayong 2013 ay siya ang bida sa Boy Golden: The Arturo Porcuna Story.

Sa presscon ng Boy Golden kahapon, December 17, sa Zirkoh, Tomas Morato, Quezon City, tinanong muli ang gobernador kung sa palagay niya ay magiging patas na ngayon ang MMFF committee sa pag-distribute ng sinehan sa mga kalahok na pelikula.

Tugon niya, “Palagay ko hindi na naman, e.

"Kasi hindi naman sinasagot ni Chairman Tolentino yung sinasabi ko sa kanyang suggestion, e.

“Na dapat, ang bunutan [ng mga sinehan], buong Pilipinas—lahat ng theaters sa buong Pilipinas, hindi lang Metro Manila.

“Kasi Metro Manila lang kami pantay, 44 theaters [each] for the eight movies, e.

"Pero pagdating sa labas ng Metro Manila, mas lamang na si Vice Ganda [Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy], mas lamang na si Vic Sotto, si Kris Aquino (My Little Bossings), na merong mahigit 100 theaters.

“So, hindi credible yung first day na kikitain sa pelikula dahil kami, 44 theaters, sila 100-plus.

"Talagang mas malaki ang income na makukuha nila.

"So, unfair, unfair."

Muli ring iginiit ni Governor ER na dapat ay ang showbiz industry na ang mamahala sa taunang filmfest.

Aniya, “Sana po ibalik sa industry para mas malaki ang share ng Film Academy of the Philippines.

"Dahil hindi taga-pelikula ang taga MMDA, e.

"Kailangang taga-pelikula ang mag-handle ng Metro Manila Film Festival.”
