Allwyn has announced a new partnership with Future Frames. It will be a three-year partnership between the two companies with the aim to offer new opportunities to emerging new directors.
The Karlovy Vary International Film Festival was first established in 1946 and is one of the oldest Film Festivals in the world. This year’s festival will take place from 30 June to 8 July in Karlovy, Czech Republic.
Starting in 2015, Future Frames has invited 10 emerging film directors each year to showcase their work. Now, following the deal with Allwyn, the film festival will now introduce an award during the ceremony that will celebrate the directors.
In addition to this, as part of the new collaboration one director will be sponsored to go to Los Angeles to receive mentoring, shadowing and training as part of a month-long scholarship program.
Allwyn’s Chief Officer Of Global Brand, Corporate Communication and CSR, Pavel Turek said of the new partnership: “Allwyn is continuing to grow its community of winners around the globe. We’re passionate about changing lives for the better and this extends beyond those who buy a lottery ticket”.
In response to the new partnership, Executive Director of the Karlovy International Film Festival Krystof Mucha gave its thanks to Allwyn, going on to say: “We can provide promising European directors with a vital opportunity to kick-start their careers and further their creative development.”
