Filipino-American filmmaker Vincent Sandoval’s “Aparisyon” won the audience award at the 15th Deauville Asian Film Festival, held in France from March 6 to 10.

Best film went to Kamal KM’s “ID” from India. The jury prize was shared by Boonsong Nakphoo’s “Four Stations” (Thailand) and Yoo Ji-tae’s “Mai Ratima” (South Korea). The critics’ prize was won by Vahid Vakilifar’s “Taboor” from Iran.

According to Sandoval , who attended the event in France, “Aparisyon” is the first film to win the audience award in the Deauville fest’s 15-year history.

The fest website lauded the film for “its profound reflection on sin, guilt, faith—rooted in a specific historical and political context, highlighted by a sophisticated mise-en-scène.”

“Aparisyon” opens in selected theaters in Manila and in Cebu on March 20.

Sandoval is one of last year’s Inquirer Indie Bravo! Tribute honorees.
