The Monaco Charity Film Festival (MCFF) – the annual event held in Monaco to benefit poor children around the world – will this year benefit the Virlanie Foundation in the Philippines.

The festival, which this year marks its 10th edition, runs from May 14 to 16 and helps filmmakers from all walks of life to find financing and distribution for their films. During four days, the festival is a celebration of films, filmmakers and audiences alike, with screenings open to all – admission is free.

On the final day, there’s a gala fundraiser dinner and show. MCFF counts in its midst numerous celebrities from show business, the political and financial worlds and royalty, but the difference at the MCFF Festival is that everyone, every filmmaker, every guest is a celebrity.

Founded and Chaired by Vicente-Andres Zaragoza, MCFF is a “Mirror of our world, and we care,” its organisers say.
