Both winners, Ynez and Richard brought their lucky charms to witness their wins: their beloved Moms.
I asked Ynez, who got starstruck by the superstar’s presence if they have worked together in the past.
“No! Not yet.”
And she learned that the Festival Director Arlyn is directing Aunor’s latest movie “Ninang Corazon“.
She talked to Direk. And she might just land a very special role in the said flick!
It is a successful film festival. Looking forward to the next!
