'Toto' Starring Sid Lucero Wins Audience Choice Award For Best Film At The 39th New York Asian American International Filmfest

‘TOTO’, the comedy starring Sid Lucero which won for him a best actor award in the L.A. Comedy Festival and a best supporting actress award for Bibeth Orteza at the Metro filmfest New Wave Section, was shown to a sell out crowd at the 39th New York Asian American International Filmfest held last month and it won the Audience Choice Award for Best Film.

Written and directed by John Paul Su (who also won as best director in the Metro Filmfest), a New York U graduate, “Toto” is the story of a young man (Sid) who’s obsessed to go to America and is willing to do anything to fulfill that dream. But when his obsession endangers the lives of those he loves, he must re-consider his actions.

The film also stars Thou Reyes, Mara Lopez, Blake Boyd, Liza Diño, Neil Sese, Bibeth Orteza and Rafael Roco, Jr., Rafa Siguion-Reyna, Jelson Bay, Marnie Lapus, Raul Montesa, Che Ramos, Carlo Cruz, and David Christopher. John Paul Su is an alumnus of the 2014-2016 Disney/ABC-DGA Directing Program, and he is currently one of the finalists in the NBCUniversal Emerging Directors Program.
