«EUROPEAN FILM FESTIVAL Mainstream & Underground» (https://www.imdb.com/event/ev0005140) has a multicultural mission. Russia has always been a multicultural country.
Cultural space of country is open to various forms of self-consciousness. Cinema is a world where anything is possible. Our festival is a meeting of Europe and Asia, mainstream and underground.
