Moscow International Film Festival (MoIFF), The Russian Film Festival is an exclusive film competition in the Grand Principality of Moscow.
Every 3 months we are happy to welcome filmmakers from all over the world and films of all genres.
Our main goal is to showcase their brilliant projects in the cultural centre of Russia for a diverse audience of cinephiles. We will promote, feature and celebrate all Award-Winning Films selected at the MoIFF.
Additionally, we will hold online sessions consisting of Q&As with directors, cast and/or crew as well as interviews with filmmakers that will be published on our social media and on the NEWS section of our collaborators and at our main website.
It is a world-class event committed to present the best of this beautiful art called ‘Cinema’ and dedicated to all generations of filmmakers. A team of professional screeners will evaluate all the submitted films. All the highest scored films will be selected for the official competition and will be reviewed by judges who will decide the best of each season.
All the Winners will receive the Official Laurels and the winning-category certificate and might order their unique trophy of the Moscow International Film Festival. Our beautiful Clear Crystal Russian Diamond Award.
