Personal Quote:

As a juror, I don't critique a film based on intellectualism or technicality. I just want to be surprised and learn something new by seeing things as it is on screen. Basically, I do not follow certain standards. I am just particular on the filmmaker's effectiveness to show what he or she really wants to say in his film without being pretentious.
