Aguiluz expressed the desire to send a cultural troupe to the United Arab Emirates in the context of the Filipino film festival. This proposal was warmly welcomed by Al Naheri, who said that the foundation fully supported the showing of Filipino films as the cinema reflects the culture of the people, according to Khaleej Times.
