Our idea is placed on the concept that cinema is not only chamber art. It is mean that films are worth to be screened not only at cinema theatres. Cinema is a powerfull tool to fight against the commodification of public areas. We elaborated the concept of Urban Cinema Vision. Urban Cinema Vision is a film program for walkers. Urban Cinema Vision is screened on the streets, squares, parks etc without warning.
So we have defined requirements for films. Because we should draw the attention of urban residents. And we should compete with the ad visual content.
Nearest Vagrant Film Festival will be held on the river Nioman (Belarus) at the beginning of June 2021. Altogether we will float off our CinemaVan-Ship, and then we will move ahead. It is an unpredictable adventure, without a ruffle, endless, with cultural aims and an anti-alienation mission. At last, we will do it again after years of an involuntary stop.
Meanwhile, we registered our vessel and got National Certificate. We should make paddles and additional roof for guest cabin, and to improve the deck in this winter.
This film festival is not awarding event. There are too many red-carpet film festivals with paparazzi and lushery. Big choice! But we can offer more than big film festivals are not able to afford. The smell of fresh grass, starring sky above the screen... But the main is our tribe of artists and long life travelers which you can join!
We are seeking films for so-called Urban Cinema Vision program. Films of this section are screened around urban locations: walls, bridges, billboards etc.
- The length no more than 4 min.

We add the category "Short films" for filmmakers who want to join our community, show the film in nature place, and if the film does not fit to the Urban Cinema Vision concept. We establish a small submission fee to sustain the community along the roads.
