During the special screening for the much-awaited Mike De Leon film Citizen Jake, Film Development Council head Liza Diño was there to show support for the comeback project of the veteran director after 19 years. Liza admitted that they are looking for an opportunity to do something with direk Mike. “I am looking forward to working with him, to partner with him because he’s an icon. We all look up to him and kung ano yung madadala niya sa legacy na ginawa niya ever since he started. And lahat ng mga movies na ginawa niya, it will contribute so much more to us moving forward and understanding ano pang mga storya ang kailangan natin ikuwento, especially kung ang inspiration natin is someone like him na halos wala kang itapon sa mga pelikula niya dahil lahat talaga nagmarka sa atin and it made us known worldwide di ba?” she explained.

With direk Mike known for having an unconventional personality, Liza said she totally understands where he is coming from and it will not deter her from trying to work with him in the future. “May kanya-kanya talagang opinion and he’s very vocal about his opinions. I hope that we get the chance to talk kasi nga I would want for him to know that we’re here to really support his cause. I know that at the end of the day his love for cinema and his passion hindi yan matatawaran,” she said.


With her spouse Ice Seguerra recently stepping down as NYC chairperson, Liza said she is now even more determined to do well in her civil service even with all the challenges she had to face at the start. “Last year it was such a trial period for me. Test talaga siya. But you realize na as long as you have a bigger goal and your vision is to really serve, hindi mo papansinin yung ganung mga tao na nagbibigay ng negativity kasi what is more important is you know that the people that you want to give support to nararamdaman at na-a-appreciate yung ginagawa mo. For me nandun na ako,” she said.
