Best actor Albert Chan Paran for the short film Julie in 2015 said the IFFM has changed her career for the best. He said, “Winning an International Film Festival Manhattan New York City 2015 Best Actor for Short Film has changed my life for the best like never been before. It’s the greatest honor and recognition any actors will ever receive by giving pride & honor to our country, the Philippines. My win was published online and in the daily broadsheets both in the US of A and in the Philippines for months. I was considered the Festival Superstar that night in the Kalayaan Hall of the Philippine Consulate General NYC because of my highly emotional acceptance speech. Because of that honor, I was given a certificate of recognition by my alma mater during the silver jubilee homecoming and the Presidential state honor in the 8th Ani ng Dangal 2016. Thank you, Sir Luis Pedron and thank you to my IFFM NYC family. I love you all.”
