Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, January 24) — Lav Diaz's "Ang Babaeng Humayo" continues to draw international acclaim as it bagged three nominations for another international award-giving body.

Diaz's film was nominated for the categories, Best Film Not In the English Language and Best Adapted Screenplay at the 15th International Cinephile Society (ICS) awards.

The other nomination was for one of the film's stars, John Lloyd Cruz, as Best Supporting Actor.

Diaz's 228-minute film won the Golden Lion Award for Best Picture at the 73rd Venice International Film Festival in 2016.

The list of nominees to the ICS awards were released Tuesday, and included 2018 Oscar contenders "Call Me By Your Name" and "Lady Bird."

Formed in 2003, the ICS is an "online group made up of approximately 100 accredited journalists, film scholars, historians and other industry professionals" who honor the "finest in American and international cinema."

Winners of the 15th ICS Awards will be announced on February 4.
