The aim of the UFF is to discover new talents and possibly create further opportunities for them in the Russian and international filmmaking industry. It is the time when young filmmakers can speak to the world and share their works.

The UFF will also include a program of lectures held by famous cinematographers.

Winners of the UFF will be given an opportunity to shoot a music film to one of the participants of the Ural Music Night 2018. Red Pepper Creative will be acting as the producer of these projects.
