The Marbella Film Festival is the flagship project of New World Trust, an organisation created to provide support for talented artists across the globe.
Van Gogh cut off his ear. Artists are known for displaying their tempestuous passion for their craft. Oddly enough, despite this passion and often remarkable talent, artists find it difficult to emerge into the commercial world.
This is because most artists are left unequipped with the means and often the knowledge to have their talent appreciated, thus rendering success as an artist exceedingly difficult. Remember, in his life Van Gogh only sold ONE painting.
Access to capital or identifying the financial backers are often the hardest obstacle for artists wishing to embark upon an artistic venture.
