Allen Dizon Delivers Potentially Award-Winning Performances In Two Films That Are Entries In The World Premieres Filmfest And Cinemalaya Filmfest

ALLEN DIZON is undoubtedly the king of local film festivals. After winning best actor awards in Sinag Maynila as the aging hosto in “Imbisibol” and in the Metro-Manila Filmfest New Wave section as the guilt-laden coffin maker in “Magkakabaung”, he now has entries in two new local festivals.

Currently being shown is “Iadya Mo Kami (Deliver Us from Evil)” where he just won as best actor in the Silk Road International Filmfest in Dublin, Ireland. This is an entry in the ongoing World Premieres Filmfest and he plays a young priest who is assigned to a remote mountain after he gets a parishioner pregnant in Manila. This will have its gala premiere at SM Megamall on Saturday, July 2, 8 PM. It will have regular screenings at Megamall on Sunday, July 3, 3 PM and on Tuesday, July 5, 7 PM. It will be shown at SM North Edsa on Thursday, July 7, 5 PM, Saturday, July 9, 7 PM and Sunday, July 10 at 5 PM. Tickets are only for P100.

In August, he also has an entry in the Cinemalaya Filmfest, “Lando at Bugoy” written and directed by Vic Acedillo. This is the story of a father who’s a high school dropout, played by Allen. His own son, Gold Azeron, won’t go to school because of this and has a very low regard for him because he’s unschooled. Because of this, he returns to school to get a proper education, along with his son, and their relationship as father and son blooms along the way. We won’t be surprised if Allen would win another acting award for his performance in any of these film festival entries.
