Filipino director Louie Ignacio is receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Film Festival Manhattan (IFFM) in New York, U.S.A.
The IFFM recognition for the multi-awarded TV, movie, and stage director is being given for achievements he received during the 25 years of his work.
“Thank you very much, International Film Festival Manhattan IFFM 2020,” Ignacio said on his Instagram post on October 13, 2020, that came with a poster from the IFFM.
The virtual events of the 2020 IFFM, including the award ceremony, are slated to be held from November 9 to 11.
With his award from the IFFM 2020, the 52-year-old director joins the list of Filipino filmmakers who brought pride and glory to the Philippines amidst lockdown and coronavirus disease pandemic.
Just this September, Lav Diaz won the Best Director award at the Venice Film Festival in Italy for his cinematic masterpiece Lahi, Hayop (Genus, Pan) while Erik Matti won Best Director at the inaugural Asia Awards for his work in “Island of Dreams”, the first episode of HBO and Warner Media-produced anthology drama series Food Lore.
