MCFF is an experience that I will NEVER forget. It was like going to school all over again, only this time I was learning about things I hungered to know about. It was wonderful meeting great people with a lot of experience and knowledge, talking with them and so much knowledge from them. It made it more Spectacular than getting the Award for Best Entertaining Film for my movie Inale …it made all the work we have put into It worthwhile; and to crown this unique experience, making new great friends.

MCFF is by far one of the best International Film Festivals that brings cinema talents together, and the facts that it’s set in gorgeous Monaco and ran by the charming L.A. Filmmaker Georges Chamchoum does not hurt either! Merci infiniment, Georges. See you in 2012!

“Thank You MCFF Team for the effort to make this the best film Festival in Monaco, after 14 years working in Monaco, it is definitely the best I ever experienced, I found the workshops excellent with special thanks for their personal contribution to Brad Littlefield and Charles Domokos from L.A. and the rest of the panel, down to earth tips and encouragements. As a scriptwriter it is great to be speaking with professionals from all over the world, young talent from Ghana, Adam Wilkinson and Patrick Masekeda, dear Obi Emelonye lawyer /Filmmaker from the UK, and you Georges showing courage to finance the documentary Children of War, which I promote with my heart, such an inspiring entourage.

It expands your vision on many cinematic styles thus enriching your experience as a filmmaker and also on a personal level. It’s a ‘magic” setting to see great movies, have fun, meet talented and devoted people and start friendships, all this in one of the most exquisite places in the world. MCFF is the experience of which you definitely want to be part of.”

The Monaco Charity Film Festival inspired me—in the arts, in the humanities, and in compassion for the least among us. It was life changing…

James Jeffery CaldwellActor (USA)

“A huge thank you for a great Festival! In Monaco, we live in a kind of bubble, lulled into a world of sun, sea and security, which benefits immeasurably from a window opened on the entire world. I was glued to my seat by “Face to Face”. The pace, casting, acting, script, development of character, direction – even the fine-tuned attention to detail – were all so polished. I’m grateful for the opportunity to discover a neat, new Antipodal take on things. Watching the last journey of Robert Kennedy was incredibly moving and the sheer beauty of “Rice Paddy” photography nothing less than enchanting.
I could go on and on, but this is already the longest one-liner I’ve ever written.”

Lois BoltonWriter/Journalist (Monaco)

What a pleasant event you created, my friend!
There are very few film Festivals in the World that care about filmmakers rather than the commercial values of the products they create and your Monaco Film Festival is certainly the best of them all. You, as an accomplished film director have such a deep understanding of what goes into making of a film, and that’s why you give so much of yourself to every participant in this fantastic event. Hope to be there again!

Vladimir HorunzhyProducer (Ukraine)

The 2011 MCFF was a wonderful platform for the independent filmmaker and a beautiful venue at the Princess Grace Theater to show independent films to a cosmopolitan audience passionate about world cinema. I thought it was truly a great Festival, Georges, and your efforts were instrumental to make it happen. I’m grateful to you and everyone for having this forum for us filmmakers.

“MCFF is truly a filmmaker’s Festival and my favorite one at that. Set in the heart of the French Riviera, it’s a place where you’ll move beyond standard networking and form lasting relationships with fellow filmmakers, many of whom are up-and-coming, from around the world. This is the most intimate, international, and inspiring Festival I have ever attended.”

“After three consecutive years at MCFF, as I myself have grown from competitor to awardee to juror, I also have witnessed MCFF and its panels and galas grow and perfect themselves into a high-class, low-pretense, no-nonsense, truly global event where independent filmmakers from all over the world come to share and celebrate their art and each other. Congratulations for six excellent years – and here’s wishing them many more!”

Alex Rotaru Filmmaker (USA)

I would like to say simply that I have been to many Film Festival, but the experience that I took away from MCFF will last me a lifetime. The diversity in Films and wonderful camaraderie among Filmmakers made MCFF a joy to be part of.
