On the final day of MCFF, a spectacular Gala Dinner and an exciting Show takes place to raise money for Charity.

Monaco Charity Film Festival counts in its midst numerous Celebrities from the Show Business, Political & Financial World and Royalty, but the difference at MCFF Festival is everyone, every Filmmaker, every Guest is a Celebrity!
