Cinemalaya Foundation chairman Tonyboy Cojuangco says that he is not bothered by criticisms being hurled at the organizing committee for disqualifying the entry MNL 143. When asked for his reaction to those asking for reforms to Cinemalaya, Mr. Cojuangco said: "If Cinemalaya will continue to churn out good movies, no amount of attacks will be able to take that away from Cinemalaya. For us, we just have to focus on what we are doing and make sure that we continue coming out with good movies. There will always be people who will attack [you]. It‘s a part of life."
