Lamberto Avellana: From Boy Wonder of Philippine Movies
to National Artist for Theater and Film

 

He started filmmaking at the age of 23 with the film “Sakay.” The biopic was hailed as the Best Picture, giving him the distinction of “The Boy Wonder of Philippine Movies” in 1939.

He directed more than 60 films. Among his accolades are the Best Director of Asia Award in Tokyo for “Badjao,” FAMAS Best Director Awards for “Scout Rangers” and  “Huk sa Bagong Pamumuhay,” and a Gawad Urian Lifetime Achievement Award. 

Avellana’s “Kandelerong Pilak” was the first Filipino film shown at the Cannes Film Festival in France. 

For being a trailblazing director for theater and film and for his numerous achievements in Philippine Cinema, Avellana was declared as the very first National Artist for Theater and Film in 1976.
