More than 100,000 stand-up comedians in the world who are constantly creating video content. Many of them choose a profession without knowing about their talents. And they have a distorted view of the work of the media. For them there is no platform for creative implementation in the film sphere. The lack of opportunities for self-realization leads to the fact that talented young people cease to engage in creativity.

The festival will help to identify, support and help in self-realization of young talents in the sphere of cinema (actors, Directors, producers, cameramen, screenwriters, etc.). As well as create conditions for their further development. The winners of the Festival will see a multi-million audience of "Tricolor TV" on KVN TV channel, and the best will be offered a job in KVN Production.

The aim of the Festival is to find, support and help in self-realization of young talents in the sphere of cinema (actors, Directors, producers, cameramen, screenwriters, etc.). As well as creating conditions for their further development.

A business platform is being created for film industry professionals, buyers and festival agents to establish contacts with festival participants. The winners of the festival will be seen by a multi-million audience of "Tricolor TV" on KVN TV channel and the best participants will be invited to cooperate with KVN Production.

The organization of the Festival is the organizing Committee of the Festival.
