CMCS Wall of Fame Film Festival

IMDB Qualified

Centre for Media and Celebrity Studies (CMCS) Wall of Fame is an international film festival in Lisbon, Portugal that helps filmmakers screen unique moving images often overlooked in the economic issues & tabloid politics of fame.

CMCS has been featured for its views on celebrities in a wide range of media including the Telegraph, CTV, Global News, VICE, Flare, Chatelaine, SUN Media, Yahoo! Entertainment, and many more. As the world’s first celebrity expert to be on tabloids, CMCS will offer honour, exposure, and connect film artists as role models in celebrity culture and offer an annual Samita Nandy Productions Award to the CMCS Wall of Fame prize winner & Hollywood’s Stage 32 webinar to 1st runner-up winner.
