The programmers consider cinema as a mirror reflecting the needs and
mentalities of different societies. One of the main principles of selecting
films is drawing special attention to new filmmaking including their own
ways of expression. The aim is to promote talents, to fight the cultural

The competition programs are dedicated to Shorts and Documentaries, to
International Films and to long-features from the Black Sea Region.
Within the International Film section, regional directors and films will
have the opportunity of competing openly and directly with productions from
