Gina Pareño Wins Best Supporting Actress in Hong Kong Filmfest

Our very own Gina Pareño has just won Best Supporting Actress for her role in “Serbis” (Service) in the recently concluded 3rd Hong Kong Asian Film Festival (HKAFF).

The festival was dominated by China, Japan and Korea. Gina Pareño was the only winner from Southeast Asia.
