Basic principles of the festival
For the first time, our festival selects films based on the duel principle. The films have to go through several stages: official selection, semi-final and final. Along with well-known masters of cinema, the audience also evaluates films.
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. Together we want to study the history and culture of different countries, empathize and think, learn to be people, evaluate films together and find new friends. Our films do not accept violence and cruelty. 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 for a wide audience.
