The festival contributes to the strength of morality in the audience. The tasks of the film festivals are also to support of the cinematographers and the popularization of cinematography in the regions.
Every film, videoclip or public service announcement that is chosen will be shown at several venues. The festival accepts films of any genre. There will be separate programs for films on human rights, films for children and screenings, films for up to 120 seconds. We also accept Music Videos, public service announcements, and posters.
