UK arts charity MMBF Trust has teamed up with Anna Kennedy OBE to provide opportunities for young people on the autism spectrum. The scheme set to be called the MMBF Anna Kennedy Award, will launch on the 1st of August and run until the 1st of October 2017 and will present a wonderful chance for an aspiring filmmaker within the autism community to win a DSLR film camera with a runner up set to receive a 1-2-1 film making day course and mentoring from the Trust plus a camera worth £500!!!
Megan Turner, chair of MMBF Trust told us ‘This scheme presents a wonderful opportunity to support minority groups that are very talented but greatly underrepresented within the current film industry. She added ‘schemes such as Autism’s Got Talent have shown us how much impact support and opportunities are needed within the autism community’. ‘ I want to thank everyone involved and I am so excited to launch this new opportunity in partnership with MMBF Trust .’ Anna Kennedy OBE
