GMA Teen Star Therese Malvar Chosen As Of The Rising Stars Of Asia At The 15th New York Asian Film Festival

CONGRATULATIONS TO GMA Artist Center teen star Therese ‘Teri’ Malvar who is one of this year’s recipients of the Screen International Rising Star Asia award at the 15th New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF). The award-winning actress was recognised for her remarkable portrayal of “daring roles that have expanded the range of contemporary Philippine cinema”.

These include her critically acclaimed performances in Sigrid Andrea Bernardo’s lesbian movie ‘Ang Huling Cha-Cha ni Anita’ and Ralston Jover’s drama about juvenile delinquents ‘Hamog,’ which previously gave the talented Kapuso artist best actress awards from local award-giving bodies. She also gave an impressive performance as a child dying of the big C in “Child Haus”.

Teri feels so honoured to be one of the awardees at the NYAFF as well as to represent the Philippines in the prestigious film festival. She will personally receive her award during the festival proper in New York. “I would like to thank the New York Asian Film Festival for believing in me. This recognition will continue to fire-up my passion in acting and be a game-changer in this industry. Mabuhay ang talentong Pilipino,” she says.

2016 marks the third Screen International Rising Star Asia award at NYAFF. The award aims to bring Asia’s outstanding new talents to international attention. Other recipients this year are Japan’s Go Ayano and China’s Jelly Lin.
