The latest news of the Festival:
Unfortunately, due to quarantine, it was decided to hold the Festival online.
On the first day of screenings (May 25), on our site - http://www.festti.com/, will appear a tab - "Screenings", on which you can go and watch any submitted film.
The judges of this season will be all viewers who can give an appropriate rating, as well as leave a comment to share impressions of the film.
To determine the winners, 3 factors will be taken into account:
1) Number of voters
2) Overall rating
All awards and prizes remain the same.
Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time. For our part, we will do our best to make this event grandiose.
No matter if you have never made a movie before, but have a burning wish to do so, or you have already made hundreds, this is the Festival for you.
What sort of movies you make, whether you create complex dramas set in medieval times, prefer fast-paced action thrillers or make nothing but western shaky-cam romantic comedies, we want to hear your story and see your vision!
Your submission can be new or old, long or short, everything we require is that you are proud of what you made!
