Malaysian actor Fattah Amin has been named Best Actor at the monthly live screening film festival, World Film Carnival (WFC), in Singapore.
The 30-year-old picked up the award for his lead performance in 2020's Miimaland.
The horror flick chronicles Ariel (Fattah) and his friends' journey as they investigate an abandoned theme park shrouded in mystery.
"When I saw my name announced as the winner (on the WFC website), I was shocked. I didn't expect it at all," he told Berita Harian.
"Frankly speaking, there's still a lot more I have to learn as an actor."
Fattah, who is married to actress Fazura and have a daughter together, added: "One thing to note is that this award is decided by a panel of professionals, not by popular vote."
According to the film festival's website, the winners of its various categories are chosen from a pool of 50 films each month. Fattah's win was part of the March 2021 edition.
Last month, Miimaland nabbed two awards – Best Horror Film and Best Director (Nevin Hiong) – at the AltFF Alternative Film Festival Spring 2021 in Toronto, Canada.
