The fifth annual British Urban Film Festival (BUFF) Awards took place last night in London in the United Kingdom which saw leading lady Terry Pheto win Best Actress for her lead role in the movie FACES.
FACES also took home the award for Best Feature Film.
In absentia due to her obligations as a jury member for the 92nd Annual Academy Awards (Oscars) for Best Foreign Film, Terry Pheto expresses: “The feeling is always so surreal to win Best Actress. I’m elated that my talent not only continues to cross borders but is recognised amongst the best on international platforms.”
Terry Pheto adds: “Thank you to the FACES team for an amazing experience. It’s an honour to be part of such an important and celebrated project.”
Terry Pheto’s latest Best Actress win forms part of her already impressive catalogue of international awards.
Having taken a shift in her career to participate more behind the scenes, receiving accolades for when she takes on leading roles on screen speaks volumes to Terry Pheto’s talent and the perfection of her craft over the years.
Released worldwide last year, FACES is a multi-narrative film set across four storylines that follow a group of characters as their lives begin to unravel. The feature film was shot in London and directed by the award-winning British-Nigerian director, Joseph a. Adesunloye.
