2021 Grand Prize Winner
"I've been working with Rob for years and one thing I know is that he knows exactly what he is doing when it comes to the creation, production and distribution of films for profit, exposure and the growth of a filmmaker's career.
With his new festival, Margolies and his team aim to do the same for all of the winners who showcase their work with the First Frame International Film Festival. To my mind, this is a first in the history of Cinema events that showcase the work of in many cases unknown talent.
Can he do it? Of course he can and I'm even giving the First Frame Team one of my films to represent."
