September 9, 2016 — The organizers of the Brasov International Film Festival & Market have announced this year’s winner of the MMBF Rising Star Award.
The recipient of the award is seventeen years old emerging Romanian actor Andrei Neamtu who is a graduate of Bruno Pischiutta’s International Film Workshops and who has been cast to play an important role in Global Film Studio’s upcoming feature film entitled THE BAD JOKE. Last year, Neamtu was the “Image of the Festival” and he was featured on the official poster. He is exclusively represented by Brasov Talent Agency.
For the second time this year Brasov Int’l Film Festival 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, scholarships and funding for first time filmmakers. Winners of the award get an award plaque, prize money (USD 250), opportunities to work on film sets as well as tickets to film festivals and film related events.
In 2015, the winner of the MMBF Award at Brasov Int’l Film Festival was actress Denisa Barvon.
The Festival was founded by film director Bruno Pischiutta and producer Daria Trifu in 2012 to showcase nonviolent, main stream motion pictures and to show that those movies are not only capable of great international success but they are also in high demand by the public.
The Festival has been recognized by the IMDB and all the awards handed each year are listed. Visit the Festival’s IMDB profile.
