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 participant of the party gets a small souvenir from the organizers - a branded mug.
