Actress Ai-Ai delas Alas won as Best Actress during the 2nd Los Angeles Philippine International Film Festival for her portrayal of a prostitute in an indie film, “Area”.
On October 29, Louie Ignacio, the film’s director received the Best Actress trophy for Ai-Ai delas Alas in the awarding ceremony held in Southbay Pavilion, Carson, California.
On October 30, Ai-Ai expressed her gratefulness for the recognition given to her after she received the good news from Direk Louie.
“Thank you sa mga organizer ng Los Angeles Philippine International Film Festival.”
“Nakakataba ng puso na na-recognize nila ang akting ko sa Area.”
Apparently, the Comedy Queen was about to attend the said international film festival but was advised not to go as during the previous ceremonies of award-giving bodies, she always wins when she’s not attending the event.
The Best Actress trophy from the Los Angeles Philippine International Film Festival is Ai-Ai’s 3rd international acting award.
She also won as best actress at the Queens World Film Festival in New York, City in March 2017 and at the ASEAN International Film Festival in Kuching, Malaysia last May 2017.
Because of the success of “Area” in the international film festival, Ai-Ai plans to do another indie film next year, 2018.
Ai-Ai delas Alas is engaged to boyfriend Gerald who she has been dating for 3 years. The couple is set to tie the knot in the US sometime in November, to be followed by another wedding in the Philippines next year.
