"On a wave of emotions!"
This festival's slogan reflects the concept: cinema should evoke the emotions of the viewer. The festival prefers films that catch and make us laugh, cry, deeply empathize. These are films with a strong catching story.
We consider short and documentary films of all genres from all over the world.
On August 26-28, 2022, three unforgettable days of the Black Sea shore velvet season await participants and guests of the festival. Cinema, emotions, the sea, the sun and live music! The festival will be held in the famous art gallery "Green Pyramid", which is a stone's throw from Chersonesos - the historical center of Sevastopol.
The festival will feature live music concerts. The participants will take a tour of Sevastopol and its picturesque surroundings.
