History

When we short our first movies and decided to send them to film festivals, we found out that there are more then 6 000 film festivals in the world. How to search for them? Which of them are worth to be chosen? Will my film be eligible for some certain festival? How to submit a film? Soon it was found out that these questions were asked by all our colleagues.

The difficult thing here was that some of them did not know English enough to find a festival by oneself and to learn its requirements and conditions. As a result we decided to collect all foreign and Russian festivals on the same site, translate all descriptions and rules into Russian and attach convenient instruments of search to the catalogue we've got. This is how Festagent appeared. We worked out a system of festivals sorting and now we have got one of the most convenient site on festivals searching.

Nowadays Festagent is considered to be one of the top 10 biggest festivals catalogs in the world and certainly it is the first among Russian ones.
