‘Magkakabaung’ wins in Ireland
Allen Dizon won best actor at the 3rd Silk Road Film Festival in Dublin, Ireland, last Sunday for Jason Paul Laxamana’s “Magkakabaung,” which brought home the best film trophy as well.
Dizon, who attended the fest, told the Inquirer via e-mail, “I’m still hung over from winning at the Sinag Maynila last Saturday … This is priceless. I can proudly share this honor with my children because it shows that, although I started in sexy movies, I was able to prove myself as an actor.”
Laxamana, who is in the United States for the Cleveland IFF, said in the same e-mail: “We previously won in North America and Asia. And now, our first best film triumph from Europe. It feels good that our work is appreciated by people across different continents.”
