ShowBiz Showcase: Monaco Streaming Film Festival to honour ‘NO TIME TO DIE’ with the Best Film Award

Once again, we at ShowBiz blog are showcasing yet another exciting news coming from the Monaco Streaming Festival, which we are actively following since the past week. The second edition of the Monaco Streaming Film Festival (MCSFF), will take place from 31st May until 3rd June 2022!

This edition is held in conjunction with major Hollywood streaming studios and Reg Grundy Media and will take place from at the Grimaldi Forum, following the Cannes Film Festival. So if you are already at this place, don’t go away quickly because something very interesting is planned to take place at Monaco!

Industry leaders and talent will descend on the glamorous principality of Monaco, the festival’s home-base, to partake in four dynamic days of premieres, VIP receptions, marketplace exhibition, conference talks and a glamorous Gala Awards night.

The talented producer Barbara Broccoli will be amongst the distinguished guests at the event, attending the event by videoconference. Now if you don’t know her, she is the brilliant producer who produced the James Bond saga during the Daniel Craig era! It is thanks to her unparalleled instincts that the best-known secret agent on the silver screen has managed to win over the world, once again. This is why Barbara Broccoli, known as "The Guardian of the Temple" because of her fervent defence of the franchise, has become a key name in film production over the years.

The best film award at the event has already been announced! It is none other than the iconic bond movie of 2021 - "No Time To Die", and we are sure it must have been an easy choice given the grandeur and masterpiece of a movie this was. A very special way for the festival to pay tribute to one of the most beloved 007 agents. And to say goodbye to him, too.

Christian Moore - one of the festival directors

In "No Time To Die", Daniel Craig bids farewell to the legendary role of James Bond with style and panache. His azure blue eyes more determined than ever, he leaves behind his licence to kill, and walks away without looking back. Considered by many to be a public and critical success, the film directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga brilliantly closes a saga that has completely renewed the genre. And this was not an easy task, as the elegant work of Her Majesty's former agents had left its mark on the minds of spectators around the world. From Timothy Dalton to Pierce Brosnan, including Sean Connery or the mythical Roger Moore, all succeeded in magnifying the famous 007’s impeccably tailored tuxedo. And, with chic and refinement, they have together managed to create a legend that will never die.

Monaco Stream Film Festival will have the honour of awarding the prize for best film to the now mythical No Time To Die at their second edition on May 18th. It is indeed a gesture of considerable symbolism for an event created and directed by no less than Christian and Geoffrey Moore, the sons of the mythical actor whose face will forever be linked to the name of the spy he played for so many years, in the truest Show Biz style ever! We are ShowBiz blog are mighty fans of the Bond series and are more than thrilled that “No Time To Die” was chosen for the Monaco Streaming Film Festival award.

Now, we have been covering plenty of award festivals and ceremonies alike but not all of them come close to the Monaco Streaming Film Festival. Last year, the Monaco Streaming Film Festival and Grundy Media joined forces to recognize the highest tier of outstanding games changers and innovators in film and global media with the introduction of ‘the Reg Grundy Innovation Award’.

The Monaco Streaming Film Festival is a hybrid festival which empowers today’s finest film content creators. On the other hand, Grundy Media is an iconic brand in global entertainment. When these forces come together – a bold vision with perfect execution is born that helps the media industry to move people on a global scale.

The Reg Grundy Innovation Award is for those showbiz stars who are similar to Reg Grundy - have boldly and brilliantly expanded the Global Entertainment Industry with unparalleled impact across all platforms.



Who are the entrants of such a prestigious award? They can be individuals or teams who have made historic contributions to both expand and elevate worldwide entertainment on an unprecedented scale.

That is why, this year, the jury members turned without hesitation to James Cameron - one of cinema's most prolific and respected directors, who will receive the Reg Grundy Innovation Award!

For more than three decades, James Cameron has striven in becoming one of the world's most influential and innovative film directors. His creations have blazed new trails in visual effects and broken records that were thought to be unbeatable. His saga Terminator is a cult classic. The unforgettable
Titanic and the surprising Avatar, the second part of which is announced for this year, have climbed to the top of the world box office with disconcerting ease.

Throughout his career, the man whose unfailing seriousness earned him the nickname "Iron Jim" has striven to push back the technical and logistical limits imposed on him in order to always surprise an enthralled audience. Today, James Cameron has become a leading director, known to film enthusiasts and novices alike throughout the world. And, after receiving multiple prestigious prizes, from the Oscars to the Golden Globes, he is now accepting the Reg Grundy Innovation Award at the Monaco

Streaming Film Festival. A strong symbol for a director whose ability to create in defiance of the forbidden is a nostalgic reminder of Reg Grundy's strength of character, obsession with perfection and unparalleled professionalism.

Mrs. Joy Chambers-Grundy, wife of Reg Grundy has said: “My husband’s masterful ability to always push beyond limits, and to turn unimaginable dreams into reality was truly exceptional. It also amassed for him international success, opened the door for all others to follow, and saw him pursue his life-long passion of entertaining people in every country around the globe.

I’m truly thrilled this year to present this prestigious award to James Cameron, in honor of Reg Grundy’s unmatched and incredible impact on the global media industry. Reg was a true innovator and trailblazer. A visionary like no other. He always inspired, motivated and celebrated the next generation, and he was always ten miles ahead of the current technology being used at the time.

He would be so proud to see this award presented to James during the Monaco Streaming Film Festival.”
