Vote for the best short-film
The Festival inherits traditions of medieval street theaters and differs from all the traditional film festivals by the way of selection of films and choosing the winner. The best film is chosen by spectator’s voting, which is made by light of their mobile phones. Citizens raise above the head phones or flashlights and shine for their favorite film, and organizers by means of special device measure the light and determine the finalists in each city. The film, which will win the majority of cities, will be the winner of the festival.
About the Festival
The traveling festival goes across the continent from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean, arranging in the cities along the way film screenings, cultural and educational events.
"The Street Cinema Festival is, first and foremost, a lift for the talented, yet unknown widely film makers, who will have the opportunity to demonstrate their works to thousands of people around the world - says the organizer Margarita Tsyganova. – In every city we collect pieces of metal, of which a statuette for the winner will be cast."
The Second Annual Street Cinema Festival is a social initiative, aimed at the development of non-professional cinema and outdoor film screenings tradition, that takes place in 12 countries worldwide from July 4th to September 8th, 2015. Within this project the cinema-caravan has departed for journey throughout 30 European cities. Free film screenings of young filmmakers already take place on stages of street cinemas including housetops, seafronts, parks, main streets from Vladivostok to Lisbon. Along with film screenings in all participating cities organized more than 100 cultural and educational events.
