THE 1975 METRO MANILA FILM FESTIVAL: ESTRADA, SOLIS TOP AWARDEES

JE’s Dilingin Mo ng Hamog ang Uhaw na Lupa topped the 1975 First Metro Manila Film Festival winning six major awards--- Best Picture; Best Actor (Joseph Estrada); Best Supporting Actor (Vic Silayan); Best Director (Augusto Buenaventura); Best Sound Engineering and Best Editing (Edgardo Vinarao). Charito Solis won the Best Actress award for Araw-Araw, Gabi-Gabi. Other awardees were Nida Blanca (Best Supporting Actress/ Batu-Bato sa langit); Luciano B. carlos (Best Screenplay/ Batu-Bato sa Langit); Nonong Rasca (Best Cinematogarphy/ Kapitan Kulas); George Canseco (Best Music/ Batu-Baro sa Langit) and Ophelia San Juan (Best Story/ Kapitan Kulas).

Known then as the 1975 Metropolitan Film Festival, the first Metro Manila film festival was held on September 21, 1975, to commemorate the 3rd anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law.

Nora Aunor's entry, NV Productions’ Batu-Bato sa Langit (directed by Luciano B. Carlos), was a hit and won as 3rd Best Picture. Vilma Santos, on the other hand, gave a notable performance in Roma Films' Karugtong ang Kahapon.

That time, Nora and Vilma were in their peak, their career and the movies they made were being followed closely, compared, watched, praised, scrutinized both by fans and critics. Their storied and fierce rivalry dominated our movie industry for years. In fact, one could argue that even to this day, a Filipino movie fan is either a Noranian or a Vilmanian.
