Allen Dizon, ‘Kamkam’ Win Top Prize at Harlem Film Fest

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.”
