‘Laut’ competes in India
Louie Ignacio’s “Laut” will compete in the main tilt of the All Lights India International Film Festival at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad, from Sept. 24 to 27.
“Laut,” which stars Barbie Forteza as a young Badjao maiden, won best actress and special mention of the jury in the Directors’ Week section of the 36th Oporto International Film Festival, or Fantasporto, in Portugal last March.
All Lights is the same fest where Carlo Enciso Catu’s “Ari: My Life With a King” won the Golden Frame Award for best directorial debut.
The Hyderabad fest’s venue, Ramoji Film City, is recognized by the Guinness Records as the largest film facility in the world. Bayani San Diego Jr.
