“Pamilya Ordinaryo” is on a roll.

Since winning the top prize at the Cinemalaya film fest last August, Eduardo Roy Jr.’s gritty urban drama has been snapping up awards all over the world—from Venice to Hanoi, from London to Brisbane.

The latest honor of Roy’s film is the Student Jury Prize at the 17th Tokyo FILMeX, held in Japan over the weekend. Roy, who attended the fest with his “Pamilya” team, told the Inquirer: “We’re overjoyed. This award is special because it was given by students. And we were told it was a unanimous decision. No other film came close to us, a jury member informed us.”

He is glad that he got to share this winning moment with his production staffers, Sarah Pagcaliwagan-Brakensiek, Lorna Sanchez and Ruel Montañez.
