Festival start: 26 June 2024      Festival end: 30 June 2024

The creation of the film festival belongs to the Association “Safety and Quality”. This is a large association of Russian employers, which has brought together under its auspices more than 3.5 thousand companies throughout the country, for which the greatest value is their employee - the Labor Man.

Why Antares? Antares is the brightest star in the night sky, a red supergiant and a guiding light for sailors. Films presented at a film festival, like a guiding star, should become moral and ethical guidelines for all viewers.

The goal of the film festival is to bring together filmmakers from Russia and foreign countries in the Russian resort city of Sochi, exchange experiences, transfer skills and knowledge, initiate new film projects and create a festival of film art for residents and guests of the city.
