Festival Overview

Short Movie Club tries to avoid "the best of the best" way but we don't ignore it completely, sure. The festival’s jury awards the best film of every section. Nevertheless, the festival provides every submitter with an opportunity to show the film, discuss and get feedback in the case of visiting. Screenings are held at National Centre for Contemporary Arts, Cinema theatre “Pioneer”, Azgur Muzeum, art-galleries. Our team hopes to create a community, brotherhood of filmmakers to celebrate a spirit of indie cinema together. We accommodate selected participants at cottages in beautiful nature place of Minsk. Also we compile comments of viewers, cinephiles and experts and send them to filmmakers. The another key point of our project is to establish a communication between the filmmaker and the audience.
