The International Emerging Film Talent Association (IEFTA) is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2016 with a series of events in Monaco and at the Cannes Film Festival.
The IEFTA is a Monaco-based association which helps young people in developing countries to succeed in the world of film making, teaching technical skills as well as bringing African film makers to the Cannes Festival each year.
On May 10 MonacoUSA will host a special Red Carpet Party to honour IEFTA, featuring photocalls, live red carpet interviews and paparazzi. There is no entrance fee. It all starts at 18:00 on the Stardeck at Stars’n’Bars and all nationalities are welcome.
During the Cannes Film Festival, the IEFTA in collaboration with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the Marché Du Film, will host Refugee Voices in Film, an all-day event, which explores the ways broadcasters, humanitarian agencies and filmmakers – some of whom are refugees themselves – engage and portray refugees and their plight.
IEFTA co-founder Marco Orsini will showcase some of these films at the MonacoUSA event on May 10.
