Last year, we honored the directors who were 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐎𝐬𝐜𝐚𝐫 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐁𝐀𝐅𝐓𝐀 𝐧𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬. The festival is based on a professional approach. In the evaluation, we focus on the technical design of the film, the idea of the film, dramatic gradation, the tone of the film, the script, the conflict, the reality of the action, the acting performances and we attention to the details on which your film is composed.
We ourselves are filmmakers, producers and entrepreneurs. We know how difficult it is to show the world that someone appreciates your work. That's why we came up with a unique project in which we involved several jurors from around the world and created a new opportunity to show your film to the world. Our mission is to recognize talent and passion and to award the best film project.
Our festival can have a greater reach and be more effective for filmmakers than a live screening festival, because nowadays everyone in the world can watch online screenings, not just from one city.
Previous winners of our festival are well-know directors such as 𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐟𝐟𝐚𝐧 𝐉𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐬𝐨𝐧, 𝐇𝐞𝐧𝐫𝐢𝐤 𝐍𝐨𝐫𝐦𝐚𝐧 (Sweden), 𝐒𝐜𝐨𝐭𝐭 𝐌𝐜𝐂𝐮𝐥𝐥𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡 (USA), 𝐁𝐞𝐧𝐣𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐧 𝐁𝐫𝐲𝐚𝐧𝐭 (USA), 𝐉𝐢𝐚𝐪𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐋𝐢𝐧 (China), 𝐗𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐞𝐫 𝐓𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐨𝐧 (France), 𝐄𝐦𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐮𝐞𝐥 𝐁𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐨𝐭 (United Kingdom), 𝐉𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐣𝐬 𝐊𝐫𝐮𝐳𝐞 (Latvia), 𝐉𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐞 𝐍𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐞 (United Kingdom), 𝐑𝐮𝐬𝐥𝐚𝐧 𝐅𝐫𝐚𝐝𝐤𝐢𝐧 (Latvia), 𝐒𝐭𝐞𝐯𝐞 𝐑𝐚𝐦𝐬𝐝𝐞𝐧 (United Kingdom) and others.
