About

Finals-battles! The vote of three of the independent jury right in the room! The jury of filmmakers against the press and the audience! Most of the events will be broadcast online.

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 national section opens in 2021. The festival will host pitching of film projects and a script competition in Russian.

OUR FESTIVAL OUT OF POLITICS 

It connects people, their kind hearts and creativity. Therefore, initially we set a goal to hold this festival every year in different countries. The first festival was held in 2018 in Moscow, Russia. Last year, the final of our festival was held in the capital of Belarus, Minsk. From 2021, the festival will be held annually in Moscow and Podolsk, and for the second time a year it will be held with screenings of the best films in other countries. 

The purpose of the festival is to stimulate young filmmakers for the new cinema, appreciating their work and to acquaint the filmmakers with culture and life of the world. 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.

Official selection takes place on a monthly basis.

Each winner will receive a diploma, gifts from sponsors. Grand Prix - 500$ and a contract with a producer. Each film that has entered the official selection will receive a certificate. The prize of audience sympathy will be drawn. And at the end of the festival, of course, a buffet table and a photo session.
