Dagdag ni Noel, “I’m happy that I’m given the mandate to consolidate the MMFF history, prospects and problems, lessons learned, critical essays and highlights of the MMFF in its very rich and colorful years into a book to be released next year (coinciding the 45th Anniversary of the MMFF and the 100th Year of Philippine Cinema). We shall be pushing for more film education and audience development programs.”
