MarVista Launching Global Film Competition with Filmaka


MarVista Entertainment is collaborating with the online short film competition platform Filmaka on a global film competition that will identify emerging new talent for content development opportunities at MarVista.

The competition will be a pitch forum that MarVista will sponsor. The finalists will be supported to create a teaser, trailer or short for their film. The final winner, who will be selected by MarVista and Filmaka, will get the chance to develop their short into a feature film or television series.

“We see this as a unique opportunity to provide aspiring and future content creators around the world with a platform for their voices and stories to be heard,” said Fernando Szew, CEO of MarVista. “With a constant focus on meeting the evolving demands of viewers and content buyers around the world, our partnership with Filmaka uniquely positions us to meet the growing demand for original content as it continues to expand its portfolio of films, series and new media content.”

Filmaka founder Deepak Nayar added: “We couldn’t be more thrilled to be partnering with Fernando and the entire MarVista team. They continually produce and distribute fun, entertaining stories across all platforms and this venture gives our Filmaka members a new and exciting opportunity.”
