Mission.

Sochi Film Festival is a year-round cultural and educational organization dedicated to fostering better communication between people of diverse cultures through the art of film and the moving image. We serve Sochi’s diverse and under-served citizenry by providing access to world-class cinema. We aim to enrich Russian cultural environment by presenting film in contexts that encourage discussion and debate.

Through the SOCHI Film Festival, our Education Program, and our year-round programming and membership program, we enhance the cultural assets of the city of Sochi by exhibiting film from around the world. We also strive to promote a deeper understanding of a diverse body of cultures, thus contributing to Sochi’s identity and orientation as an international city.

This year’s theme for our Film Festival is “New Filmmakers” and should address new beginnings: as new filmmakers, new MBAs, new scripts. We are looking for creative quality feature and short films that are consistent with and/or celebrate the theme of the festival.
