the idea of holding the festival arose due to the vacuum of such initiatives in the city, as well as the desire to create a more "grassroots" than "official" event that would promote current Ukrainian and international cinema and would be free and open to local communities.

the festival will unite musicians, directors and art lovers in different city center locations.

4:3 int’l short film festival has two competition programs: ukrainian and international. the competition films will be evaluated by the jury and awarded with the main competition prize. each member of the jury can award one film with a special mention.

please, notice that there are no cash prizes, the winners of the main prizes will receive original trophies.

due to the russian invasion of Ukraine, we inform you that 50% of the funds raised from your film submission will be redirected to the local Ivano-Frankivsk Drama Theater Fund “Rukh Oporu”, which deals with urgent humanitarian issues in the region and the country as a whole.
