The film was unveiled last May at the 66th Cannes International Film Festival where it won the Camera d’Or for Best Debut Feature. In the citation read before the awarding, Camera d’Or jury president Agnes Varda declared, “We were touched by four characters, and the story of a family in Singapore. The director's intelligence and sensitivity bring forth very important issues —childhood, immigration, class struggles, the economic crisis. We were unanimous in our first round, and have chosen to award the Camera d'Or to Anthony Chen for ILO ILO."
“Iloilo” has so far traveled to more than 20 international filmfests. It has received numerous awards and recognitions, including Singapore’s Best Foreign Language Film entry to the Oscars, Best First Film at the British Film Institute London Film Festival, Best Feature Film at the Molodist International Film Festival, Best Narrative Feature at the Philadelphia Film Festival and Best Film at the Pacific Meridian Film Festival. The film also reaped four more awards last weekend during the Golden Horse Awards in Taiwan which includes Best Supporting Actress for Yeo Yann Yann, Best New Director and Best in Original Screenplay for Anthony Chen and the Best Feature Film.
Bayani is set to grace the special screening in Cebu.
