After a relatively successful acting career in Australia, Felino Dolloso is looking forward to doing projects in the Philippines.
The Filipino-Australian film actor has recently signed up with Philippine-based talent management company, VEDA Productions.
“I was looking for a Management in the Philippines to represent me in the film industry and I was introduced to VEDA Productions,” Dolloso said.
Dolloso plans to pursue film projects that are produced in the Philippines and he is relying on VEDA Productions to represent and connect him to the right people.
“The plan is to work both here in Australia and in the Philippines. So I would travel wherever the acting work is. The ideal lifestyle I’m chasing for the next few years is to work full time as an actor in both countries,” the versatile actor said.
Felino is a graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne and has acted for more than 20 years in different theatre productions, television shows and a number of films shot all around Australia.
His latest work, “Survive or Die,” which recently won at the Vegas Movie Awards for Best Indie Movie Feature, has gotten him a Best Actor Nomination from the AFIN International Awards for his role, “The Captain”.
After appearing in the Sydney-production of “Cabesang Tales” written by historian and playwright Floro Quibuyen, Felino got in touch with his Filipino roots and decided to come back to the Philippines to explore an acting career in film under Olive de Jesus, the head of Veda productions which manages singer-comedienne Tuesday Vargas, film and television actress Karla Pambid, and television and film actor Valeen Montenegro.
Survive or Die feature film is in the last stages of the international film festival circuit and will soon have a general public release.
It has been a successful run in the film festivals winning several awards including Best Films and nominations including a Best Australian Actor in a Feature Film for Felino Dolloso.
Pre-Production has started for the new feature film The Human Side to be directed by Dicky Tanuwidjaya (Happy Homeless Man) with Felino Dolloso in the lead role. Filming is scheduled to start in 2020.
Dolloso will be seen in these upcoming Australian Television series – Upright, Reef Break and Fall Out.
Felino Dolloso received great reviews from critics in his portrayal of ‘Jovy’ in the play ‘The House at Boundary Road‘ written by Filipino-Australian playwright Jordan Shea.
