What is film language? And where to find the right one? One that will please everyone... And the big audience and the true cynics of cinema. Our team is absolutely convinced that you have to look for it only inside yourself, not on any surface of the world. We believe that it is the cinema, which is made from our own depth, based only on our own experience, and not thinking in terms of clichés, textbooks or movie rules. It is the kind of cinema that has the right and should be covered, that should attract the viewer, because that is the truth... The personal truth of the author, his knowledge of a person or of the world. The knowledge that we put into every gesture, look, word in the film. What could be more important than this kind of cinema?
If your thinking is similar and your film is made on similar principles, we will be glad to see you at our festival. And we promise to recognize the most worthy of you, we will be fair and honest with ourselves and you, otherwise it all makes no sense.
Let your film become part of something bigger and move from "shelf" to coverage, which we will try to help with.
