ISABELLA MASROUGA has become the youngest ever MMBF Award receipent and here is everything you need to know about her!

While most young artists struggle to find creative outlets and guidance, Isabella Masrouga cultivates her passion for visual arts and storytelling at the Cinematic Arts Academy at Millikan Middle School in Los Angeles. There, along with rigorous academic coursework, she's required to singlehandedly write, shoot and edit multiple projects each year. At age 11, Isabella made four short films and was honored with the Academy's coveted "Spirit Award," acknowledging her creativity and supportive attitude toward her classmates.

Isabella's first narrative film, "A Baker's Dozen," was named "Under 21 Best Short Film" at the Carmarthen Bay Film Festival in Wales, UK, making her the youngest recipient of the MMBF Rising Star Award to date. This film was also an official selection at the Nassau Film Festival, StarDance Youth Film Festival, Los Angeles CineFest and the 300 Seconds Short Film Festival.

Isabella's most recent work, "Some Bunny's Story" was featured at her school's highly competitive Spring Film Festival where it screened at the legendary Egyptian Theater in Hollywood.

When she's not making movies, Isabella loves photography, traveling and playing with her feisty and photogenic cat Hamilton.
