During a guest appearance on Jovi Vargas TV on Thursday, Feb. 29, Pokwang shared that one of the projects that fans can look forward to is her next film that will debut at the international film festival, although she hasn’t revealed much detail yet. 


Coming from the success of her Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry “Becky and Badette” with another renowned comedian-actress, Eugene Domingo, Pokwang said that she is about to make one of her dreams come true when she attends Cannes in May. 


“Attend ka doon sa red carpet, kita mo ‘yung mga Hollywood star. Isa rin ‘yon sa mga pangarap ko na matutupad,” she said. 

Aside from the upcoming short film, the comedienne teased that she also has a new television series that she cannot reveal just yet. For now, she asked the fans to continue watching her ongoing series, which are the variety show “TiktoClock” and the sitcom “Jose & Maria’s Bonggang Villa,” led by real-life couple Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes.

Pokwang is set to be added to the growing list of Filipino talents trying to make a mark in the international industry, such as Lovi Poe who also has an upcoming independent film “Bad Man” that is set to open in Hollywood. 

Just recently, Liza Soberano made her Hollywood debut with “Lisa Frankenstein” and was also invited to attend the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG-Awards) that took place on February 25.
