After holding a casting call last year for her film Fan Girl, director Antonette Jadaone proudly shared that the project is making its global debut in Japan this year. In her Instagram post, she wrote, “F I N A L L Y ! ! ! A world premiere for a film that’s so close to my heart! FAN GIRL will have its world premiere at the @tokyo_intl_film_festival Tokyo Premiere 2020 section   The lone Filipino film in Tokyo Premiere 2020 section.   After years of script devt, finding the right cast, waiting for the right time, believing that everything happens for a reason, sa wakas. My heart is happy.   Festival runs Oct 31 to Nov 8, 2020! (The trailer is on the Tokyo Intl FF website if u wanna see it! Link on my bio!)”

The movie follows the story of an obsessed teenage fan named Jane (played by Charlie Dizon) who finds herself stuck inside a mansion with her celebrity idol (Paulo Avelino playing himself) for one night.

Direk Tonette shared that she had no problem getting her lead actor on board for the film last year. “Starring Paulo Avelino as Paulo Avelino (alam ko sinasabi lagi ito pero ito pramis, ibang Paulo Avelino talaga makikita n’yo dito, di ba papi???) (PS. When I sent @pauavelino the script, nung tinanggap nya ang pelikula, sabi niya lang, ‘Game!’. At napakasarap nun para sa isang writer at direktor na umpisa pa lang, nagkaintindihan na kami sa vision ng pelikula. Salamat, Pau!!!) and finally we can reveal, Charlie Dizon as FAN GIRL - a heartfelt, riveting performance from this young woman. Proud of my actors. And mighty proud of my team (more on them leytah),” she shared.


“From mumsh Bianca: A few weeks from now, we will also announce our next premiere in main competition of another A-list festival. We’re so excited to share this film to all of you!”
