Hunk Actor Allen Dizon bagged the Best Actor award at the 9th Harlem International Film Festival held in New York City recently for his performance in the Jason Paul Laxamana-directed film “Magkakabaung (The Coffin Maker).” He tied with Indian child actor Minon (“101 Chodyangal”).
Dizon posted on Facebook:
“My 1st International BEST ACTOR Award ..thank u so much HARLEM INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL…Direk Jason Paul Laxamana thank u.. Mabuhay ang Capampangan at Pelikula filipino..”
Meanwhile, “Kamkam,” another Dizon-starrer, won Best Film at the same festival.
Directed by veteran filmmaker Joel Lamangan and written by Palanca awardee Jerry Gracio, “Kamkam,” is supposed to be a “study on the effects of corruption engendered by a patriarchal system upon the poor people.” It shows how “absolute power corrupts and destroys relationships within the family and the community.”
