As the country’s representative to the prestigious event, Maja said: “Nakaka-proud maging Pilipino kasi mas dumadami yung digital films na gawang Pinoy ang naipapalabas abroad,”
“Nakikita nila kung gaano kagaling ang mga Pilipino, hindi lang yung artista at director, kundi pati mga gumawa ng script. Kaya sobrang sarap na napabilang sa mga pelikulang nakilala internationally.”
This is not the first international exposure for the film. “Thelma“ was also screened in the U.S. at the 22nd Cinequest Film Festival in California, the 36th Cleveland International Film Festival, and the 31st Hawaii International Festivals. It also received several major nominations in a number of local award-giving bodies and was named Digital Movie of The Year at the 28th PMPC Star Awards.
