“Why do I have high hopes for (SFFR)? Most of the members, if not all, belong to this new generation, younger population cohorts – a few of the younger Gen X, majority are of Gen Y or millennials, probably 2 or 3 from Gen Z or zoomer age – therefore, they speak the language of those savvy of the new media, they should represent the new voices, could give us fresh insight and new interpretation of cinema.”

Mauro Feria Tumbocon, Jr., renowned Filipino film critic and programmer
