The TRAVEL FilmFest (TRAFF) international film festival collects the best travel films from around the world, which were created both by professionals and by enthusiasts, and helps to get them across to the audience.

Travels can be different: with money or without it, lasting for one day or for a couple of years, by buses and trains, by cars and motorcycles, by bicycles and by foot, in your neighbourhood or to the opposite end of the Earth, alone or as a group, with prefabricated route and spontaneous, independent or organized, "all-inclusive" or limited. This list can go to infinity.

All types of travel have only one thing in common - they are never boring.

Nowadays any traveller takes along his photo or video camera, his smartphone. There is nothing easier than uploading a non-processed travel video to the Internet. As a result, the web is stuffed with "trash" videos, in which the real travel films, which are carefully designed, well
shot and intelligently assembled, simply drown.

The task of our festival is to draw attention to such films. To films that are worth watching.

If you are shooting travel films, you are likely to have a strong desire to share your impressions.

With those who are interested in travelling, and travelling of the exact type and style, which you are attracted by the most. With those who will evaluate your work. With those who will follow your example. With those who will join you in your next trip. With those who will participate in the creation of your next film.

Our festival is created to find and unite all of these people.

People travel all year round - without any weekends and holidays. Therefore, our festival is held all year round. The provisional results are summed up once per quarter, at the end of the season - winter, spring, and summer. Every autumn the best films are shown on a big screen, and the winners are determined.

The films, which were selected to participate in the festival, will be uploaded to be displayed on our website and in the social networks - as a complete artwork (only with the consent of the author) or as a trailer for the wide view and discussion. Authors will be able to obtain feedback from the thankful or displeased viewers.

All best films that were selected during the online festival, will be shown on the big screen during the solemn final ceremony on October 22-23, 2022 in Limassol (Lemesos) on the island of Cyprus and will be able to struggle for the main prize and the title of the "Best travel film". As well as for the prizes in the standalone nominations.

We admit only the films about travels, both modern and historical ones. As well as those films, where travel is an important part of the synopsis. Fiction, production, animated and documentary films on any types of travel and adventures on the water and in the air, on land and under it, in the mountains and forests, on seas, rivers, lakes, swamps, about hiking, ski trek, rides on public transport, on vehicles and motorcycles, bikes, hitch-hiking, bus tours, pilgrimage tours, round-the-world trips... As well as web-series and music videos, the storyline of which is based on travel.

Not all creators of travel films are necessarily the professionals, who work in the movies industry or on television. This is just a hobby for the majority of contestants. However, this does not mean that their films are worse. The original story that is told in the film plays a far more important role than its budget or the awards of its creator. You can make a good film even if you do not have a large budget, stellar cast and a large production team. You hold the keys to the kingdom. Go ahead!
