The Marbella International Film Festival brings together artists and their films from all corners of the globe to display their talents to the commercial world. The festival is the flagship project of New World Trust, the non-profit organisation created to provide support for talented artists across the globe. October 3rd – 7th 2012.
The Festival is growing in stature and receives continuous worldwide accolade, recognition and support for its contribution to the arts. The opulence of the Spanish area of Marbella naturally includes the quintessential sophistication derived by art and culture. Delegates converge to celebrate the Festival over five days, culminating with a prestigious gala awards ceremony to recognize the best films in their category.
Van Gogh cut off his ear. Artists are known for displaying their tempestuous passion for their craft. Oddly enough, despite this passion and often remarkable talent, artists find it difficult to emerge into the commercial world. This is because most artists are left unequipped with the means and often the knowledge to have their talent appreciated, thus rendering success as an artist exceedingly difficult. Remember, in his life Van Gogh only sold ONE painting.
Access to capital or identifying the financial backers are often the hardest obstacle for artists wishing to embark upon an artistic venture. The objective of the trust is to provide start up capital for independent art projects, offering hands on support in all commercial aspects. The support system includes assistance in marketing, project and financial management, business angles, agents and distribution networking, and trying to overcome any other obstacles which potentially hinder the artist’s ability to create. All those involved harness their unique background of experience and expertise, not merely to create an ambitious programme, but to deliver this at the highest standard imaginable.
