Last July 12, 2017, Ms Baby F. Go, the lady boss of BG
Productions is elected as one of the new members of The Rotary Club of Greater Mandaluyong.
When asked how does she feel being elected, Ms. Go briefly answered, "I'm happy kasi ang inaasign sakin [ay] pag-seservice." (I'm happy because I'm assigned to give service.)
Ms. Go also has her own foundation who gives scholarships, goes to medical missions and provides street children with food. A humble Ms. Go did not discussed further the details of the plans of her foundation preferring that people will know once they've seen and because they've heard of it.
Through her own effort, Ms. Go established and managed BG Productions, now on its 4th year in the industry BG Productions produced quality films that gained praises in the international film.
"Masaya ako dahil napalaki ko ang kompanyang ito (BG Productions) at nagpatuloy pa rin ang pagpoproduce ko ng movie. Makatulong din sa mga taong nasa industry ng movie."
(I'm happy that I've successful managed the company and I will continue to produce movies. And also, to help people who are in the industry).
BG Productions is behind the critically acclaimed film AREA starring Ms. Martina Delas Alas, also know as Ai-Ai Delas Alas, who won the Best Actress award in ASEAN International Film Festival and directed by Louie Ignacio, who in the same festival won the Best Director award. The film also bagged several recognitions and prizes in other international film festivals”
In recent unfolding of the events regarding this year's Metro Manila Film Festival issue, Baby Go Productions also submitted a script that did not pass the MMFF Selection Committee standards. When asked about the issue, Ms. Go refused to make a comment. She rather join the festivals abroad saying unlike the country's MMFF, international film festivals are more peaceful. Ms. Go preferred to keep BG Production under her management quiet and professional.
"Gusto ko lang ipagpatuloy yung sa akin ... Ipaglalaban sa ibang bansa, mas maganda kasi tahimik. Ang buhay kapag independent ka ... kung saan ka pupunta, walang gulo unlike dito sa atin, maingay. Wag na lang. Kasi gusto ko tahimik at peaceful ang BG Productions and professional.'
(I just want to continue to work and join internationally, it's nicer because it's quiet. Whenever you join [outside of the country], when you are an independepent film maker, it's more peaceful unlike here. I just want to keep BG Productions peaceful, quiet and professional.)
With all the issues in the upcoming MMFF aside, Ms. Go could not hide her happiness with the new film makers in the industry.
"...masayang masaya ako kasi... gumagawa ang mga bagong film maker. Masaya ako hind lang para sa akin. Masaya ako."
("I'm really happy. With all the new filmmakers in industry creating. I'm happy not just for myself. I am happy.")
