Rise Artists Studio and Star Magic talent Charlie Dizon received a great post-Christmas gift that's going to give her 2021 a bright start: a Best Actress award (for the movie Fan Girl) from the 2020 Metro Manila Film Festival

The Antoinette Jadaone-written and directed Fan Girl paired the up-and-coming actress with actor Paulo Avelino. The coming-of-age film revolves around Jane, portrayed by Charlie, who's obsessed with her idol (played by Paulo) and got to spend a night with him.

Fan Girl initially premiered at the 33rd Tokyo International Film Festival in Japan last October, and was the only Filipino film that made it to the 24th Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival in Estonia.
