Veteran Director Maryo De Los Reyes Wants To Turn His Native Bohol As Ar Center In The Visayan Region

ACE DIRECTOR Maryo J. de los Reyes is very thankful for the recent Ulirang Alagad Ng Pelikula Sa Likod Ng Kamera Lifetime Achievement Award that he got from the PMPC. "It inspires me to come up with even better movies and TV shows," he says. "Tamang-tama nga na when I got the award, tiempo namang kasisimula ng bagong show kong 'Pari 'Koy' sa GMA-7 and I'm glad that it's getting very good feedback for its goals to come up with an inspiring program that conveys good values about hope, faith and love for one another to our viewers."

One of his future plans is to develop his native Bohol as a center of art and culture. He has a farm there where he regularly hies off to renew his soul and creative juices. "I plan to eventually to put up an art barn for Visayan artists as a venue para sa kanilang artworks. I feel na yung artists na nasa mga nasa probinsya sa Kabisayaan who don’t have the chance to come over to Manila should be given the chance to have their own place where they can shine, parang yung ginawang art gallery ni BenCab sa Baguio which has become an art haven for the artists up north at dinarayo talaga roon ngayon maging ng mga turista from Manila.”

This is indeed a noble endeavor and we hope other established artists will help Direk Maryo J. in his goal to put up a regular artists in the Visayas. Meantime, Direk Maryo is happy that "Pari 'Koy' is gaining more viewers and supporters who watch each new episode regularly. This week, don't miss Dingdong Dantes in the title role as he tries his best to continue convincing doubting Thomases among his parishioners that he really means well as the unconventional new priest of Barangay Pinagpala.
