Anne Curtis is scheduled to fly to Italy at five in the afternoon today, April 22.
The TV host/actress will be representing The Gifted, which has been invited to its first international film fest: the 17th Far East Film Festival to be held in Udine, Italy.
Directed by Chris Martinez, The Gifted tells the story of two highly-intelligent but odd-looking BFFs (Anne and Cristine Reyes) who became sworn enemies because of unexpected turn of events.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Anne couldn’t help but feel giddy about attending an international film fest for the first time in her life.
“You know this is a first time for me. So, it’s another dream come true to be invited to an international film festival for The Gifted.
“Sobrang excited to see what the whole experience is all about,” she said in an interview after the Cream Silk Portraits media event held at The Theatre in Solaire Casino and Resort last night, April 21.
Anne was recognized for the said brand’s #WorldClassFilipina campaign as she was able to achieve her dream to make it in the international scene via Blood Ransom, which was shown in Los Angeles last October.
Asked if she’s open to do another Hollywood project, Anne replied, “Definitely. I was able to meet new people when I was in the States. So it’s just a matter of time to go there and audition.”
In the meantime, she’s slated to host Lifetime Asia’s F Word Out Loud, a six-part magazine style series that will be tackling “fun, food and fashion.”
“Of course, there’s F Word Out Loud. That’s in [the cable channel] Lifetime Asia.
“So, that’s another international project. It will be shown on regional TV across Asia.
“I think that’s pretty exciting. I think that will be coming out by the third quarter this year,” she said with a smile.
With all the things she’s exploring in terms of her showbiz career, Anne admitted that settling down with her boyfriend Erwann Heussaff is not on the table at the moment.
“Not naman it’s a plan. But it’s just, you know, if it happens, it happens. Just not now.
“But who knows? I won’t be a manang that’s for sure,” she beamed.
