Vilma bested 21 other lead actresses of film entries from Asia Pacific, including Australia.

    She was first honored as Best Actress for “Ekstra” at the 2013 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival 2013 and the Gawad Tanglaw Awards 2014. “Ekstra” is a touching drama-comedy film that revolves around the lives of bit players in the movie and TV industry like Loida Malabanan (played by Vilma).

    In 2013, “Ekstra” gained international premiere as part of the Contemporary World Cinema program of the prestigious 38th Toronto International Film Festival. The Jeffrey Jeturian-directed film earned unanimous grade of “A” from the Cinema Evalution Board (CEB). Part of Star Cinema’s 20th anniversary in the movie industry, “Ekstra” also features Ruby, Tart Carlos of “Be Careful With My Heart,” Cherie Gil, Pilar Pilapil, Nico Antonio, Tom Rodriguez, Direk Marlon Rivera, Vince de Jesus and many more. Also part of Vilma’s milestone movie is the special participation of Richard Yap, Marian Rivera, and Piolo Pascual.
