Ai-Ai delas Alas, Ina Raymundo win Best Actress in Fantasporto film festival
Ai-Ai delas Alas and Ina Raymundo recently bagged the Best Actress award at the recently-concluded Oporto International Film Festival in Portugal.
Delas Alas won the award for her role in “School Service”, a recognition that saw her win the same honor in the Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival awards show last August 2018. Raymundo, on the other hand, won for her role in “Kuya Wes”, which was a finalist in last year’s Cinemalaya awards.
Delas Alas took to Instagram on March 3 where she marked the latest milestone in her career with a hearty thanks to the divine.
“Maraming salamat sa [ating] mahal na ina Mama Mary and sa ating butihing Ama, Lord maraming salamat po sa napakagandang blessings na ito sa 2019,” she wrote.
(Thank you to Mother Mary and to our Father, Lord thank you so much for these wonderful blessings this 2019.)
“And thank you very much Fantasporto International Film Festival Award (Portugal) for the best actress award.”
