June 29, 2019

McGuffin Film Fest, the 4th International film and video art festival for children and youth, is accepting applications from youth film schools, film studios, amateur and professional creative associations, and independent participants under 18. Feature and documentary films, public service announcement and video art must be presented in the highest quality.

You will watch competitive programme films and videos on a big screen. They are to be assessed by an international jury. Young filmmakers from Russia, Europe, Canada, the USA, Australia, Asia and the Middle East countries have already submitted their applications. 

Annually, McGuffin Film Fest attracts creative youth of Russia and the world. The festival aims to modify the Russian cinema and 'erase' the geographical boundaries between aspiring filmmakers from around the world.

Apply until September 8 on the contest website.

Film and video art festival will run from 2 to 6 October at Moscow Palace of Pioneers in Vorobyovy Gory. It includes lectures and master classes by renowned Russian and foreign film industry representatives, gala screenings, reviews of technical innovations, round-table meetings and discussions.

2 through 4 October, McGuffin Talents, a non-public creative laboratory, is to be held. Young talents will have an opportunity to both improve their skills and create some significant work, and meet professionals. The programme will be supervised by Russian and foreign filmmakers and tutors.

On 5 and 6 October, the traditional festival weekend with the competition screenings, discussions and lectures will take place. Russian participants will exchange experiences with foreign colleagues, watch their films and communicate in person or during Skype sessions.
