MMBF Trust announce new horror filmmakers competition
International charity MMBF Trust has announced their new horror filmmakers competition in partnership with celebrated horror filmmaker Emma Dark. The competition will also mark the introduction of the MMBF Emma Dark Award.
The competition launching on the 1st of January will offer horror filmmakers or creatives with an idea a chance to make their film whilst also offering a filmmaker with a complete film with publicity for their current project plus funding for their next film.
The MMBF (Matthew Martino Benevolent Fund) is a 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.
A spokesperson for MMBF said “MMBF are excited to be working with such a talented role model as Emma. We hope her competition will empower a whole generation of filmmakers.”
The winner of the award will get a Physical MMBF Award, Publicity for the filmmaker/creative, A mentoring session with Emma Dark, Mentoring from MMBF Film Department to develop their idea, £250 (US $350) prize money towards shooting your idea plus Invitation to film events.
Emma Dark commented on her new award saying: “Filmmaking is an art and in some regards an art form that is less supported than others in the UK, particularly when it comes to genres such as horror. Having had recent successes with filmmaking myself, and winning an MMBF Rising Star award earlier in 2015, I believe it’s important to help assist organisations such as the MMBF that support up and coming, and particularly young filmmakers, enabling a new generation of outstanding talent and helping ensure that talent gets the recognition it deserves.”
