International Film Festival.

About

Laurus Film Festival is a review competition of films received evaluation by the Selection Committee.

The Festival is organized by Catharsis Film Company and takes place in libraries and cinema clubs. The Festival is held annually, starting in 2019.

The Festival’s aim is to support cinematographers and to contribute to the development and promotion of film industries and audience involvement in film evaluation.

The film festival focuses on a variety of themes and genres.

The Festival is in place to raise funds for the feature film «The Power of Good» by the «Catharsis» film company. Most of the proceeds from the festival will go to the production of the film «The Power of Good». Part of the funds will cover organizational expenses and some money will be sent to charitable funds for sick children.

It is a strong advocate for social change, and encourages cultural diversity and understanding between nations.

We are also including and actively supporting not only the finest examples of classic moviemaking, but works that are experimental, breaking ground in new non-narrative forms and crossing over into the video arts. All films will be reviewed as they are submitted, and the best in each category will be chosen to screen at the festival. Semi-finalist  films will not be screened but will receive our festival laurels.   

The final decision on the inclusion of the film in the Festival competition program is made by the Selection Committee which reserves the right not to explain the reason for the refusal and not to give any comment.

Films of the competition program are evaluated by the audience came to the film screening. The winners are determined by the method of calculation the votes in each category.

The winners receive valuable prizes from sponsors and partners, laurels and diplomas.
