Inicio Festival: 16 octubre 2017      Fin Festival: 17 noviembre 2017

This year one of the most authoritative expositions of the international student cinematography will take place on various platforms in Moscow and all over Russia in autumn, and it will traditionally happen in two stages:
1. 16-27 of October 2017 – VGIK contest
2. 13-17 November 2017 – international movie and theatre contest.

Student film festival is a special event. Unlike the actual movie festivals, it shows the “here and now” situation, it gives the opportunity to see a glimpse of the future, dispel the secret of “what’s the cinematography of the future like?” and see the world with the eyes of people who will communicate with us through the big screens very soon. People like this for sure can be found among the contestants.

To be sure of it you just need to remember some names of the previous festival contestants, During the 56 years of the festival existence (for the first time in 1961) it gave birth to some major Russian and international movie stars. For example: Andrey Konchalovskiy, Alem Klimov, Andrey Tarkovskiy, Vasiliy Shukshin, Nikita Mihalkov, Artavazd Peleshan, Vadim Abrashitov, Sergey Soloviev, Aleksey German junior, Alexandr Kott, Anna Melikyan, Petr Buslov, Aleksey Mizirgiev….

With every year the program of the festival gets wider and more various. Along with the contest of the feature, documentary, animated and TV films there are Theater contest, retrospective of the classics, thematic exhibitions, master-classes, creative meetings, discussions and many other events.

All of that will be interesting not only for the people who work in the film industry, but also to amateur cinema-lovers. The first ones will be able to have discussions with the colleagues, exchange experience, get professionals and amateur viewers review on their work. The seconds ones will enjoy the freedom that goes along with student creativity.

Development is impossible without contention. Due to the VGIK international student festival the young cinema-workers will be able to check their worth, get new knowledge and international professional contacts, and express themselves as the future that starts now!
