The XVIII International Festival-Workshop of Film Schools Kinoproba is now accepting applications to participate in the competition program. The festival will take place in Ekaterinburg on December 1-5, 2021. All the events of the festival — competition program screenings, master classes, lectures, etc. — will be free for all visitors.
The competition program is open to film departments of universities and professional film schools of Russia and the world presenting programs of films by their students; students and graduates with their films made in 2020-2021 from around the world; as well as debutants who have made their first short films.
As in previous years, the Kinoproba festival accepts animation, fiction, and documentary short films up to 30 minutes long. The country of the film’s production and the topic of the film do not matter, but the duration of the film, the year of its production (2020-2021), and compliance with Russian legislation (no extremist content allowed in films) is important. Films made in children’s film schools are not accepted for consideration.
Film schools, graduates, and students from different countries have attended the previous editions of the festival; for example, the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), the Netherlands Film Academy (NFA), film schools from Poland, Italy, and Russia; the students of the Moscow School of New Cinema, the Alexander Mitta Studio School, and many others.
Festival organizers: Autonomous Non-profit Organization “D.K-Kinoklub,” Sverdlovsk regional organization of the Filmmakers Union of Russia, the Ural State University of Architecture and Art (USUAA).

We are looking forward to receiving your application!
The applications will be accepted until October 10, 2021.
