Sid Lucero and Emilio Garcia Win Best Actor in Thessaloniki Film Festival


Sid Lucero and Emilio Garcia, both stars of the indie film “Selda” (The Inmate), was awarded Best Actors in the 49th Thessaloniki International Film Festival in Greece. The Film Festival which started on November 14 and concluded on November 23, 2008 has a 49-year history and this time two Filipinos tied for the Best Actor award.

Selda, which was directed by Paolo Villaluna and Ellen Ramos, is the first Filipino film to compete in this festival. The movie is about a young man (played by Sid Lucero) who was imprisoned for defending his wife (played by Ara Mina). He then meets a fellow inmate (played by Emilio) who helps him adjust to life inside prison.
