LAPID LAUDS JOHN ARCILLA FOR VENICE FILM WIN

Senator Lito Lapid has filed P.S. Res No. 903 to congratulate and commend Romeo “John” Gonzales Arcilla for winning the Volpi Cup for Best Actor in the 78th Venice International Film Festival.

Filipino actor Arcilla portrayed the character of Sisoy Salas in the Filipino film “On the Job: The Missing 8” and he became the very first Filipino who bagged this prestigious recognition.

“Nagsisilbing inspirasyon ngayon si Arcilla sa mga artista at ibang pang mga kababayan natin.”

“Ang pagkapanalo ni John Arcilla sa isang prestihiyoso at international award-giving body na gaya ng Venice International Film Festival ay isa lamang patunay na world-class talaga ang talento ng mga Pilipino sa maraming aspeto lalo na sa sining. Nagsisilbing inspirasyon ngayon si Arcilla sa mga artista at ibang pang mga kababayan natin na nasa mundo ng sining para magpursige pa lalo at ipakilala ang galing ng mga Pinoy sa buong mundo,” Lapid said.

The Venice International Film Festival is the world’s oldest film festival and is considered as one of the “Big Three,” alongside the Cannes Film Festival and the Berlin International Film Festival, that ascribe international fame to outstanding artists and creators in film.

The 78th Venice International Film Festival was held from September 1 to 11, 2021 showcasing 92 films from all over the world.

A Filipino film, Erik Matti’s “On the Job: The Missing 8,” was included in the 21 feature-length films in the festival’s main competition.

“Saksi ako bilang Pinuno sa Probinsyano kung saan kami nagsama sa galing ni John Arcilla,” the veteran legislator said.

“Marapat lamang na kilalanin natin ang natamong tagumpay ni John Arcilla bilang pagsunod na rin sa sinasabi ng ating Saligang Batas.”

“Marapat lamang na kilalanin natin ang natamong tagumpay ni John Arcilla bilang pagsunod na rin sa sinasabi ng ating Saligang Batas na dapat pahalagahan ang sining at kultura sa ating bansa tungo sa pagpapalakas ng ating pagmamahal sa bayan,” the seasoned lawmaker added.

Lapid hopes the Senate will adopt the resolution to congratulate and commend Arcilla for his victory and success in the said prestigious award-giving body.
