Wagi ang veteran director na si Joel Lamangan ng Best Directing Gold sa FACINE 28 (28th Filipino International Cine Festival 2021) para kanyang pelikulan Lockdown na nanalo ring Best Film Gold ka-tie ng Midnight In A Perfect World, sa San Francisco California.

Ang Huwag Kang Mangamba actor naman na si Paolo Gumabao na bumida sa Lockdown ang tinanghal na Best Actor Gold ka-tie si Jerald Napoles ng pelikulang Ikaw At Ako At Ang Ending.

Paolo Gumabao lands first lead role with 'Lockdown' by Joel Lamangan


Sa Lockdown ay gumanap si Paolo bilang isang dating OFW na napilitang maging cybersex male worker dahil sa kahirapan. Si Jerald naman ay isang ill-fated bagman sa pelikulang idinirek ni Irene Emma Villamor.

Hindi naman makapaniwala si Paolo sa kanyang kauna-unahang best actor award.

“Wow! I’m just lost for words… Winning a Best Actor Award has been my dream since I was just a little kid and now that it’s here I can’t help but feel grateful for everyone who stood by me on my journey.

“Thank you Direk Joel Lamangan and Sir Jojo Barron for giving me the opportunity of playing this amazing role that pushed me to my limits. I’m sharing this award with my idol (I’m a huge fan) @iamjnapoles who is commonly known for his comedic style but in this film (Ikaw at Ako at Ang Ending) displayed depth and vulnerability in his craft. Congratulations brother @iamjnapoles and Congratulations to team #ikawatakoatangending ! Sana magkatrabaho tayo soon kapatid! God Bless you and your whole team!

“I would also like to thank FACINE for appreciating our craft and sharing our craft to the whole world,” masayang pahayag ng aktor.

EXCLUSIVE: Paolo Gumabao, minsan nang nag-dalawang isip tungkol sa showbiz: ‘Para sa akin ba talaga ito?’
