‘Taklub’ Wins at Beirut International Film Festival


Taklub directed by Brillante Mendoza received the Best Feature Film Award by the audience vote at the 15th Beirut International Film Festival, held recently in Lebanon.

The story is about a mother played by the veteran actress Nora Aunor who loses her kids when Yolanda hit Tacloban in 2013.

Last May, the Nora Aunor-starrer also won the Ecumenical Jury Prize-Special Mention at the 68th Cannes Film Festival in France.

Next fests for the advocacy film on “Yolanda” survivors are Sao Paulo (Brazil), Golden Horse (Taiwan) and Dubai (United Arab Emirates).
