Hello, hello! Ilo Ilo just bagged three more awards. The first Singapore film to win the Camera d’Or  prize at the 2013 Cannes film festival, Ilo Ilo  has won three major awards at the 10th Jameson CineFest Miskolc International Festival in Hungary and captured the Best Actor award at the 9th Eurasia Film Festival in Kazakhstan.
Child actor Koh Jia Ler won the Best Actor award at Eurasia while director Anthony Chen attended the film festival in Hungary, where Ilo Ilo won the Grand Jury prize, the FIPRESCI (International Federation of Film Critics) prize and the International Ecumenical Jury prize.
“The three prizes in Hungary were awarded by separate juries and they all told me how they were moved and impressed by the film,” Chen told Today. “Of course I am so proud of Jia Ler, he was selected out of thousands and worked really hard, particularly for someone who had no acting experience at all; it was nice that he was given a real pat on the shoulder.”
