18 Mar – The 2019 Metro Manila Film Festival entry, "Write About Love" has been recognised at the Osaka Asian Film Festival 2020.

As reported on ABS-CBN, the news was announced by TBA Studios on Facebook, saying that the film won the ABC TV Award at the recently held festival.

"Arigato gozaimasu," the post added.

According to the official OAFF website, the film is "a wonderful comedy that is bright and energetic to watch even though it incorporates serious themes. The technical aspects of the film are elaborate as reflected in the aspect ratio. Scenes taking place in the real world are shot in 4☓3, the movie scenes are 16☓9, and eventually the two worlds are mixed."

The film previously won several awards at the 2019 MMF including Best Actress for Yeng Constantino and Best Supporting Actor for Joem Bascon, as well as Best Screenplay and Best Theme Song.
