The International Film Festival "Catharsis" will be held for two weeks at more than 15 venues (cultural centers, film clubs and libraries) in several Russian cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ekaterinburg, Penza, Vladimir, Novosibirsk, Pskov, Vladivostok.

The tagline of the festival: “Film production with meaning!”

There will be separate programs for films on human rights, films for children and screenings, films for up to 120 seconds. We also accept videoclips, social videos and posters.
