Festivals in Russia
“EcoCup” is the only festival in Russia, which familiarizes Russian viewers with a foreign ecological film. The uniqueness of EcoCup is in the synthesis of creative approaches to the concept of “ecology of life”. Environmental protection is a conscious choice, an action that brings results. All the films at the festival are shown in Russia for the first time. These films have participated in international festivals, they won the prizes and were shown in cinema houses around the world.
was founded to emphasize the important role of non-feature films in cultural life of the country and allow national documentary filmmakers become more familiar with the world of international cinema. However, with years, the goals of the Festival had broadened and as a result, short fiction and animated films were added to the competition program. This year the Festival also makes a new step toward experimental films.Every year the Festival presents over 50 Russian premieres and more than 300 films from around the world are screened in competition and special programs. On average the Festival receives over 3000 films for selection each year. These films become accessible to every participant and guest of the Festival through the Festival’s video-library.
