Eugene Domingo is best actress


Filipino actress Eugene Domingo wins best actress at the 3rd Pau International Film Festival held in France, for her work in Marlon Rivera’s “Ang Babae sa Septic Tank.”

MANILA, Philippines—Comedienne Eugene Domingo won best actress honors at the 3rd Pau International Film Festival held in France over the weekend for her work in Marlon Rivera’s “Ang Babae sa Septic Tank.”

Domingo attended the festival with producer Joji Alonso, who announced her achievement on Facebook.

Domingo received the trophy created by sculptor Chahab.

“Septic Tank” competed with films from Romania (“Best Intentions”), Russia (“Chapiteau-Show”), Japan (“Himizu”), Ukraine (“House with a Turret”) and Sweden-Denmark-France (“Play”).

According to an online report, the Pau fest’s goal is to “introduce politically engaged films” to the French audience.

Earlier this year, Domingo topped an online poll and won the best actress award (People’s Choice) at the 6th Asian Film Awards held in Hong Kong—also for “Septic Tank.”

She is one of the honorees in “Indie Bravo: 3rd Inquirer Indie Tribute” to be held Monday night at the paper’s Makati office.
