OFA is a monthly IMDb verified festival. The main mission is to prove that everything is possible. The motto - "Miracles around". The winners will have the opportunity to be interviewed and be published on our website.

Why our Festival matters: We open independent cinema to the public. Today, new ideas and true art are expressed through independent films. In addition, any filmmaker should raise awareness about his projects. Big studios use wide-budget PR campaigns. As for independent cinematography, there are several less expensive ways, such as receiving awards and reviews or interviews. We are creating our community of filmmakers. Which facilitates communication and getting to know other members of the community. One of the means of creating such a network is the NFT trophies introduced by us. This is a community for real talents. After all, festivals have traditionally been a place for discovering new talents.
