Moscow Film Party is a Special Award Event of New Harvest Film Festival which takes place TWICE a year - on January, 25 (on occasion of Student day) and on June, 27 (on occasion of Youth day).

Film screenings are alternated with their author brief interviews and live music. That's quite a fresh format of interaction and a nice possibility for cinematographers to present their works. Every author gets a small souvenir from the organizers - a branded mug.

Foreign cinematographers from all over the world are invited to present their films at the Party. Each of them is interviewed. The musicians whose music videos have been preselected for the Contest are also invited to attend the Event and to present their music to the audience in a LIVE-mode. The atmosphere of the Party is always cheerful and friendly.

All authors (Official Selection) attending the Event get souvenirs from the organizers - a branded mug. The Winners also get Cups and Diplomas. All Official Selection and Semi-Finalists get laurels and special diplomas by e-mail.
