Actress-screenwriter Bela Padilla took to her Instagram Stories to announce some good news: that her film Mañanita has been nominated in the 32nd Tokyo International Film Festival, which will take place from October 28 to November 5.

The film follows a former military sniper (Padilla), who was discharged from duty. After losing her job, she spends nights in bars getting drunk, until she gets a phone call about a mission that will change her life.

The film’s nomination was announced in Roppongi Hills in Tokyo City and was posted on Instagram by Tokyo-based Filipino journalist Florenda Corpuz. According to her, Mañanita is joined by six other Filipino films that will compete in other categories of the acclaimed film festival.
