The La Navicella Venezia Cinema Award was conferred by the Rivista del Cinematografo on Mendoza, the director of the independent film "Thy Womb," Saturday morning in Italy.
Composed of film critics, Rivista del Cinematografo or Journal of Cinema, has been giving recognition to participating films at the yearly Venice film festival since 2000.
Mendoza's award comes a day after the conferment of the Bisato d' Oro Award on veteran actress Nora Aunor, who portrays a Badjao midwife coping with her own infertility in "Thy Womb."
Alternately titled "Sinapupunan," the Filipino independent film is up against 17 others vying for the Golden Lion award, the highest prize given to a film at the yearly gathering in Italy.
The prize, introduced in 1949, is also regarded as among the most distinguished in the film industry at large.
The cast of "Thy Womb," which includes Lovi Poe and Mercedes Cabral, received a 5-minute standing ovation after the film’s screening at the prestigious film fest.

  1. First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!
