Cinemanila honors Dolphy with international award
Another international award awaits Dolphy when the 12th Cinemanila International Film Festival formally opens Dec. 1 at Robinsons Galleria.
The Cinemanila’s Lifetime Achievement Award was previously presented to screenwriter Paul Schrader in 2009 and film director Quintin Tarantino in 2007.
Cinemanila founder Tikoy Aguiluz announced that the award will be presented to Dolphy before the screening of the opening film, “Pinoy Sunday,” a foreign film which stars Dolphy’s son, Epy Quizon, Bayani Agbayani, Meryl Soriano and Alessandra De Rossi.
A few weeks ago, the 82-year-old Dolphy was similarly honored with the Grand Collar of the Order of the Golden Heart, and many viewed the recognition as a step closer to becoming a National Artist.
