For the first time this year, Brasov International Film Festival & Market has partnered with the MMBF (Matthew Martino Benevolent Fund). MMBF is a London, UK based international charity that supports filmmakers, actors and individuals studying or working in performing arts worldwide through training grants and scholarships, funding for first time filmmakers and provides sponsorship for film related events such as film festivals and film award ceremonies.
The aim of the MMBF Rising Star Award is to encourage new and emerging filmmakers and actors by publicising their talent and supporting their future work. Winners of the award get an award plaque, prize money, opportunities to work on film sets as well as tickets to film festivals and film related events.
