Why MMBF Trust ?
"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."
