Ang Tagpuan ng Alternative Vision Cinema ang nagwagi bilang Best Feature Film sa 6th Chauri Chaura International Film Festival ng India noong February 3, 2021.
Idinirek ni MacArthur Alejandre at pinagbidahan ni Alfred Vargas, ang Tagpuan ang itinanghal na 3rd Best Picture at nagbigay kay Shaina Magdayao ng best supporting actress award sa 46th Metro Manila Film Festival noong December 27, 2021.
Tuwang-tuwa si Alfred sa parangal na tinanggap ng Tagpuan mula sa isang international film festival kaya lubos ang pasasalamat niya sa Panginoong Diyos.
"Thank you Lord," unang reaksiyon ni Alfred nang marinig niya ang magandang balita.
"Hanggang tenga ang aking ngiti. Such good news! This is once again a testament to the Filipino talent and creativity.
"Congrats to Direk Mac who did a brilliant job in intertwining the medium’s space and time with its emotions, places, and characters to effectively narrate Ricky Lee’s wonderfully captivating screenplay. Congratulations also to my co-actors and everybody who worked on our film.
"Tagpuan is the story of Filipinos all around the world. Through this film, we were able to tell our story and share our emotions, culture, sensibilities, and worth to the rest of the world.
"This Best Feature Film award from an international film festival is an inspiration for me to produce more films that are truly Filipino in spirit and are competitive in quality when placed on the international stage. Definitely, more quality films can be expected from AV Cinema."
Ang Alternative Vision Cinema din ang producer ng Kaputol, ang pelikulang mula pa rin sa direksiyon ni Alejandre. Ang mga bidang artista rito na sina Alfred, Cherie Gil, at Angel Aquino ay nanalo ng best performance award sa 4th Innuendo Film Festival sa Italy noong October 2020.
Sa kabila ng mga karangalang inaani ng mga pelikulang ginawa nila ni Alejandre, nananatiling mapagkumbaba si Alfred dahil sa kanyang paniniwalang collaborative effort ang tagumpay ng bawat proyekto.
Saad niya, "Filmmaking is collaborative work. And the awards and recognitions are a result of all the hard work of an entire village of collaborators.
"The honor belongs to everyone. Producing films is a great undertaking that requires a lot of sacrifices. And validation such as an award is a reminder that nothing good comes easy and that all the hard work is worth it.
"The key to this recognition was us being true to our core. And our core is our being Filipinos narrating a Filipino experience enveloped in a spirit that is truly Pinoy."
