MANILA, Phlippines -- Comedienne Eugene Domingo added another best actress trophy to her collection for the award-winning film "Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank."

Domingo was named best actress at the 3rd Pau International Film Festival, which was held in France from December 4 to December 9.

Directed by Marlon Rivera,"Ang Babae sa Septic Tank" tells the story of three filmmakers who are doing an indie movie with Domingo as their lead actress at the Payatas dumpsite.

Last year, Domingo also won at the Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival.

"Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank" was also one of 63 films considered in the Foreign Language Film category of the 84th Academy Awards in the U.S.
