Speaking on this occasion Dr. Martha said, “I am so honored to be chosen as this year’s Goodwill Ambassador for the Angel Film Awards – Monaco International Film Festival on their 15th Anniversary. It is so nice that MIFF picked a Canadian, especially since it’s Canada’s 150th Anniversary this year. MIFF is the ONLY film festival in the world that promotes Non-Violent Film, and in a world where gun violence and terrorism is commonplace, MIFF founders Rosana Golden and Dean Bentley should be highly commended for sending such an important message. MIFF’s message also aligns with The Owen Hart Foundation’s goal of promoting global kindness and Canada’s mission in the world – to be the ultimate peacekeepers”.
This year’s theme for the Angel Film Awards – Monaco International film festival is about loneliness, family values, love, suspense and WW2 true events and how to overcome, followed by lucid dreams.
