/ 06:24 PM September 17, 2013

MANILA, Philippines—Young actress Barbara Miguel won best actress in the recently concluded (September 11-15) Harlem International Film Festival in New York City, the festival’s website said Tuesday.

Miguel is lead actress of Joseph Israel Laban’s “Nuwebe”, which also competed in Montreal and this year’s Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival.


“Nuwebe” tells the story of one of the youngest mothers in Philippine history, Laban told in an earlier INQUIRER interview.

At the Harlem festival, it was the only Filipino film in competition, Laban said in his Facebook post.

Miguel became popular in the Philippines via GMA’s prime-time soap, “Munting Heredera,” which ran from May 2011 to February in 2012.
