All You Need to Know About the MM Innovators Fund

The extremely dynamic and renowned British philanthropist, Matthew C. Martino launched a charitable fund, the MMBF Trust in 2013 to help few young struggling artists and filmmakers by providing the much needed financial aid along with guidance and training to help them launch their career and achieve the much needed success. The growth was phenomenal with a full board of Trustees and partnership liaisons with various organizations around UK in the fund’s kitty by 2014.

On February 14th 2016, the Trust has launched yet another fund, the Matthew Martino Innovators Fund which will be overseen by the leading filmmaker and producer, Paul Knight. Paul is humbled and honored by the position and feels that the Fund will really make a difference in the right nurturing of tomorrow’s talents and he was extremely excited with the opportunity to be able to give something from his part.

With the fund’s slogan as ‘With Love From Matthew’, the find has mushroomed under the shade of the MMBF Trust plans but aims to become a separate entity within years. It would be granting a financial aid of about £250 to aspiring artists from any creative field along with guidance, counseling and training and real time exposure to help them achieve success in their chosen fields.

This MMBF Trust -funded opportunity provides 10 groups or individuals with £250 to help kick-start their creative projects. In the past MMBF Trust has funded everything from dance and film projects to music videos and photography collectives. Whatever creative field you work in, we’ll consider your application.

The MMBF (Matthew Martino Benevolent Fund) is a UK based international charity that supports  filmmakers, actors and individuals studying or working in performing arts worldwide through training grants and scholarships, funding for first time filmmakers  and provides sponsorship for film related events such as film festivals and film award ceremonies. We also support aviation students and aspiring pilots with support towards their fees costs, training material and medical costs.
