INITIATIVE. I commend local film advocate Albert Chan Paran for taking the initiative in organizing the Cebu Filmmakers’ Club (CFC) whose main aim is to encourage aspiring filmmakers to join it via Facebook.

They can help achieve the dream of reviving the Cebuano movie industry, particularly the making and promotion of independent film productions. All well-meaning Cebuanos should support Paran’s initiative.
