F I N A L L Y ! ! ! A world premiere for a film that’s so close to my heart! FAN GIRL will have its world premiere at the @tokyo_intl_film_festival Tokyo Premiere 2020 section ✨ The lone Filipino film in Tokyo Premiere 2020 section. ✨ After years of script devt, finding the right cast, waiting for the right time, believing that everything happens for a reason, sa wakas. My heart is happy. 💗 Festival runs Oct 31 to Nov 8, 2020! (The trailer is on the Tokyo Intl FF website if u wanna see it! Link on my bio!) Starring Paulo Avelino as Paulo Avelino (alam ko sinasabi lagi ito pero ito pramis, ibang Paulo Avelino talaga makikita n’yo dito, di ba papi???) (PS. When I sent @pauavelino the script, nung tinanggap nya ang pelikula, sabi niya lang, “Game!”. At napakasarap nun para sa isang writer at direktor na umpisa pa lang, nagkaintindihan na kami sa vision ng pelikula. Salamat, Pau!!!) and finally we can reveal, Charlie Dizon as FAN GIRL – a heartfelt, riveting performance from this young woman. Proud of my actors. And mighty proud of my team (more on them leytah). Produced by my super producers @biancabalbuena and @danvillegas. From Project 8, Epicmedia, Black Sheep, Globe Studios and Crossword Productions. 💪🏼 From mumsh Bianca: A few weeks from now, we will also announce our next premiere in main competition of another A-list festival. We’re so excited to share this film to all of you! (Photos by @backrollz)

Life of a fan girl

Do you remember those times when every one of us made a separate social media account just to be able to express our love and support to our idols? Apart from posting our sentiments and support, we even go beyond stalking their profiles every single day, copy every piece of clothing they wear, try to locate where they are, and even sending them long messages we know they won’t be able to read but still send them anyway.

That is the gist of what the story of ‘Fan Girl’ is. Charlie Dizons’s character finds herself inside a mansion with her idol she thought she knew, and discover precisely why they say never meet your idol.

In an Instagram post, Dizon shared how she felt about her first movie project and the experience that came with it.

See her sentiments below!

Finally!!! Magpi-premiere na ang Fan Girl 😭 Sobrang nagmarka sakin ang Fan Girl not only because first major film ko, but also because of the experience. Sobrang dami ko pong natutunan while we were doing the film. Ito na ata yung pinakanahirapan ako dahil hindi lang sya emotionally challenging, physically and psychologically din. Pero sobrang worth it lahat ng experience. I believe that destiny paved the way para makapag-audition ako. Noong una, wala po akong idea na may project na Fan Girl at matagal na silang naghahanap for the role. Sobrang biglaan po yung audition and I remember holiday nun kaya muntik na talagang di ako makapag-audition. I had no idea about the story but I went because I knew na si Direk Tonet yung director. During the audition, pagpasok ko pa lang, sabi agad, pakibura lahat ng make-up. So dun pa lang kinabahan na talaga ako. Syempre nahiya ako sa no make-up face look dahil first time ko mag-audition nang ganun. And then after I said my lines, tawang-tawa ako sa harap nila sa sobrang awkward at hiya. But thank you Direk Tonet and to the whole team behind Fan Girl for the trust. Thank you Direk @tonetjadaone for guiding me sa buong process. Thank you sa tutok na binigay mo. Even after shoot talagang kinakamusta mo ako sa experience ko sa set. Ang swerte ko na nakatrabaho kita Direk ❤️ Also I wanna thank my acting coach, Sir Jay @husejose for guiding me. Di lang tungkol sa acting ang natutunan ko sayo but also ang dami mong nabigay na life lessons na forever kong babaunin. And to my number one idol, thank you for being a giving partner and for being such a gentleman. @pauavelino And of course to God, thank youuuu! Nakailang bisita din po ako sa Inyo sa Baclaran Church since last year. Worth it lahat ng pagtitirik ng kandila at pagkatok kay Sto Niño para i-wish na sana makapasok kami sa international film festival at eto na nga ang sagot Mo. Sobrang thank you God!! Thank you universe!!! Sinagot N’yo talaga ako. ❤️ Noon, isa lang din akong fan na pumupunta ng mall shows. Never kong inakala na makakagawa ako ng ganitong klaseng pelikula. ❤️
