In the serveral Gabi ng Parangal’s I attended, this was the only time The Superstar Ms. Nora Aunor did not win to the shock of his supporters and fans. But good news is that the festival screening has been extended to January 7 2017 to encourage more people to watch a different set of indie dominated films in the sea of change.
