Umaani ngayon ng samu’t saring reaksyon mula sa Netizens ang paghahain ni Sen. Manny Pacquiao ng panukalang batas para baguhin ang pangalan ng taunang Metro Manila Film Festival o MMFF na ginaganap tuwing Pasko na nagtatapos sa unang linggo ng Enero ng kasunod na taon. 

Sa inihain n’yang panukala noong Lunes, January 25, kinilala ng boxer and politician - na minsan ding umarte sa pelikula at telebisyon - ang role ng festival sa pagtataguyod ng film industry sa bansa at pagpapayabong ng kulturang Pilipino. 

“MMFF has manufactured films that conveyed the richness of Filipino culture and heritage as well as the aspirations and struggles of the nation,” aniya.

Gayunpaman, bagama’t sinasalamin daw ng MMFF movies ang lipunan, sining, at galing ng mga Pilipino, the festival subtly promotes exclusivity dahil Manila-centric daw ang dating nito. 

“However, despite MMFF’s commitments to enrich Philippine culture, to deepen our awareness of our historical heritage and traditional values, and to refurbish native arts, the event’s nomenclature depicts exclusivity. The ‘Metro Manila’ in the Metro Manila Film Festival conveys exclusiveness of the illustrious tradition and celebration of local film production to the country’s capital.”

Ito ang daw ang layunin ng senador kaya n’ya inihain ang Senate Bill No. 2017 o An Act Renaming Metro Manila Film Festival to Philippine Film Festival, para maging inclusive ito.  

“In order to fully recognize the local movie industry’s goal of over-all developmental effort for the country, it is but suitable to rename the Metro Manila Film Festival into an inclusive ‘Philippine Film Festival,’” paliwanag ng senador.

Inulan naman ito ng iba’t ibang reaksyon sa social media. Marami ang tumutol sa gustong mangyari ni Senator Manny dahil hindi naman daw usapin ng exclusivity ang meron sa pangalan ng festival dahil nangangahulugan lamang ‘yon kung saan ito nagmula at idinadaos. 

“It should remain MMFF,” ayon sa komento ng isang Netizen sa Facebook. “[Y]our argument of exclusivity does not weigh on the gravity that it was initiated precisely on the geophysics of metro Manila it all started in Manila .. and if you don’t recognize the historical gravity of consequences .. you better study more of such relevance .. MMFF should remain as is.. and your tribalist attitude doesn’t suit any argument at all.”

Idinaan naman sa biro ng isa ang kanyang reaksyon at ginawang halimbawa ang mga film festivals abroad.

“Buti na lang sa France di nila naiisip baguhin ang Cannes Film Festival to France Film Festival or sa Germany ang Berlin International Film Festival to Germany International Film Festival, etc.,” anito.

Bwelta naman ng iba, mas marami daw na issue ang mas dapat bigyang-pansin gaya ng pandemya, presyo ng bilihin, unemployment, kurapsyon, at iba pa, kesa sa pagre-rename ng isang fiesta.
