KinoDUEL International Film Festival

An International Film Festival.


Our festival will be the first to select films on the principle of a duel, as in sports. The films have to go through several stages: official selection, semi-final and final. Along with the well-known masters of cinematograph, the audience will also evaluate the films themselves.

The purpose of the festival is to stimulate young filmmakers for the new cinema, appreciating their work and to acquaint the filmmakers with Russian culture and life of the Moscow region. We accept all genres of films from all over the world and give the opportunity for new filmmakers to evaluate their films and compete with other famous cinematographers.

Films made with soul and love are accepted from the heart, and our viewers want to see films in which one can experience and rejoice, love and be inspired, think and learn, believe, dream and enjoy viewing. We welcome new ideas and forms, a new vision and creativity in all its manifestations. Films do not have to be premieres, but all the premieres will be separately marked by the organizers. The festival will show the best of the presented films for a wide audience in one of the best cinemas in the city.

We will invite all nominees-finalists to the festival. For the finalists during the festival we pay for accommodation, meals, transfer from the airport(railway station), accreditation for all events of the festival. Each winner will receive a diploma, gifts from sponsors and the main prize - a tour "Rest in Russian." Each finalist will receive personal gifts. Each film that has entered the official selection will receive a certificate. Films that participated in live shows will also receive an official certificate. The prize of audience sympathy will be drawn.
