O’Hara’s film bested 28 other films under the Women Filmmakers Section of the festival, which had the theme, “Better Film, Better Audience, Better Society” for this year. During the Cinemalaya 2018 awards night, Mamang, with Celeste Legaspi in the titular role, won the best actor award for Ketchup Eusebio’s portrayal of Ferdie, son of Legaspi’s character.
