Allen Dizon's Movie, 'Bomba', That Won His The Best Actor Award At The 33rd Warsaw International FilmFest To Be Shown At SM North Edsa On Friday, March 9

ALLEN DIZON won the best actor award at 33rd Warsaw International Filmfest in Poland in October for his crackerjack performance as a deaf-mute in the provocative drama, “Bomba”, one of the 15 films in the main competition that came from different countries.

The members of the jury who chose Allen are from Poland, the Netherlands, Ukraine, Israel and Sweden. When they gave the best actor prize to Allen, he edged out Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal who has made a name in Hollywood. Gael was nominated for the film “If You Saw His Heart”.

Allen also bested the actors from Russia, Romania, China and Sweden in their respective entries. This could only mean that Allen’s performance is really outstanding. Now, you have the chance to watch Allen’s award-winning portrayal of a man so oppressed and marginalized by society that he’s like a walking time bomb that’s about to explode in “Bomba”, written and directed by Ralston Jover.

“Bomba” is one of the five entries in the little known and dismally promoted SinagMaynila Independent Film Festival in SM Cinemas, with Cannes Filmfest best director Brilliante Mendoza as the festival director who obviously doesn’t believe in giving more publicity for his own festival. We mean, why would you have a filmfest then hid it from the viewing public?

“Bomba” will hold its gala premiere night this Friday night, 8 PM, at SM North Edsa and Allen will be there, along with Direk Ralston and the film’s producer, Dennis Evangelista. Also attending is teen actress Angelie Nicole Sanoy, who plays a shocking role as Allen’s ward and underaged lover in the story. Angelie won the best actress award in Warsaw alongside with Allen.
