We select films from all countries of the world, including Ukraine! Art is stronger than politics!

The International Film Festival «FESTPRO» will be held from 17 to 23 April in several Russian cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Penza and Vladimir.

The tagline of the festival: “Film production with morality!”

The festival contributes to the strength of morality in the audience. The tasks of the film festivals are also to support of the cinematographers and the popularization of cinematography in the regions.

The festival accepts films of any genre. There will be separate programs for films on human rights, films for children. We also accept Music Videos.
The Festival is in place to raise part of the funds for moral films by the Catharsis film company. Part of the funds will cover organizational expenses and some money will be sent to charitable funds for sick children.

It is a strong advocate for social change, and encourages cultural diversity and understanding between nations.

We are also including and actively supporting not only the finest examples of classic moviemaking, but works that are experimental, breaking ground in new non-narrative forms and crossing over into the video arts. All films will be reviewed as they are submitted, and the best in each category will be chosen to screen at the festival. A jury of industry professionals will then view the finalists and choose the winning selections.

  • A frivolous festival! My film was selected, but that doesn't mean anything. Another fundraising film festival.

    Response from festival:

    If you are talking about the status of the semi-finalist, then the information was originally written on the festival's website: http://festprofilms.ru/about-semi-finalists/ These are films that received high scores, but did not make it to the final, we encourage these films with laurels to attract the attention of other selectors. Films with the official selection status were screened and evaluated by the jury.
