The A-Listed film festival accredited by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations announced the participation of the Filipino film after the release of its official selection on October 22, 2020.

‘Fan Girl,’ the sole Filipino film entry in the main competition, will have its European premiere in Tallinn right after its anticipated world premiere at the 33rd Tokyo International Film Festival this October 31.
