Barbie Forteza Happy And Proud That Her Movie, 'Laut', Is An Official Entry In Three International Film Festivals

BARBIE FORTEZA has reason to feel very happy. She has a new soap with Andre Paras, “That’s My Amboy”, to be shown in primetime at that, and her new movie, “Laut” about the people of the Badjao tribe who resettled in Pampanga, is now an official entry in various film festivals. It will be the opening film of this year’s Singkuwento International Filmfest 2016 this February. Then it got four nominations from the International Filmmakers Festival of World Cinema in London (including for best foreign language film, best director for Louie Ignacio, Carlo Catu for best screenplay and Vanessa de Leon for best editing). It’s also in the official competition section of the Director’s Week at the 36th Oporto International Filmfest to be held in Portugal from February 25 to March 6.

Barbie herself is qualified to compete as best actress. “Sana naman, isama nila ako kapag may delegation that will attend sa film festivals na ito para makarating naman ako sa London at Portugal,” she says.
Produced by Baby Go’s BG Productions, the movie also stars Jak Roberto, Gabbi Garcia, Ronwaldo Martin, Anna Capri, Perla Bautista, Felixia Dizon and Rico Barrera.
