“I am proud despite all going on in the world from COVID-19 to social injustice to climate and environmental issues, we can continue our program without interruption for nine years. We continue to support the Cannes Film Festival and the Marche du Film and the value the organization has brought to our filmmakers and aid for world peace, diversity, social justice, cultural preservation, and ensuring those that are often overlooked and unheard have a voice. We hosted a beautiful and needed World Peace & Tolerance Awards & Summit during Martin Luther King Day this past January 18th, and honoured so many that focus on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King including films. However, it is essential to have our program during the most anticipated and prestigious Film Festival. We are also excited to launch a larger program dedicated to smartphone cinema and the continuation of the Karl Bardosh Cell Phone Cinema Humanitarian Awards. Last year despite being on-line we still managed to host our program and this year we are determined to continue. As it is essential, we thank the Cannes Film Festival and Marche du Film for providing outlets and platforms to ensure our creative industry can sustain and many voices will be heard through the art of film. Another honour is, we are proud to recognize Mr. Bruno Chatelin for his work in film and his long standing support for the filmmaking and film festival community. Certainly individuals like Mr.Chatelin are much appreciated,” stated multi-media talent and Founder H.R.H. Princess Dame Angelique A. Monet.

All films in the awards program will be announced by June 22nd. Two films scheduled to be honored are Two Time Oscar Nominee Barry Alexander Brown’s “Son of the South,” and “The Brazilian Templars Mystery,” (also scheduled for a special screening during Cannes Film Festival and participation in Marche du Film).

A new award will be introduced specific to the two films entitled “Royal Honour Film Merit of Excellence,” a new honour under the Patronage of H.R.H. Princess Dame Angelique A. Monet.
