Vilma Santos Aims To Produce, Direct FilmsSeemingly not content with being a superb actress and a respected politician, Vilma Santos-Recto is setting her sights on producing and directing films.
"Given a chance na ano pa ang puwede kong magawa sa pelikula, talagang gusto kong mag-produce at saka gusto ko mag-direct," the Batangas governor told Lhar Santiago in an interview for “Balitanghali” aired this Thursday.
Santos-Recto recently won the “Best Actress” award in the Dhaka International Film Festival in Bangladesh for her portrayal of the lead character in the film “Ekstra” (The Bit Player).
The actress said that she is really happy because of the award since it signifies that people recognize the work they have done for “Ekstra”.
“So happy ako kaya pagkakataon ko na ito para magpasalamat sa lahat ng mga nakasama ko sa Ekstra, higit sa lahat kay Direk Jeffrey [Jeturian] at Atty. Joji [Alfonso, producer],” Santos-Recto said.
As of now, the actress says she will be choosing her next film based on what she thinks will challenge her.
