The festival slogan: "On a wave of emotions!" reflects the concept: cinema should evoke the emotions of the viewer. The festival prefers films that catch and make us laugh, cry, deeply empathize. These are films with a strong catching story.
Feature full length, shorts (up to 30 min) and documentary films - from all over the world are considered.
Every year three unforgettable days of the sea shore velvet season await participants and guests of the festival. Cinema, emotions, the sea, the sun and live music. The festival is held in the famous art gallery "Green Pyramid", which is a stone's throw from Chersonesos - the historical center of Sevastopol.
