The festival “Artkino” is the only one festival in Russia which organizes the screenings for its participants. The films awarded with the prizes or special institutors’ or jury’s diplomas can take part in final screening tour throughout Russia. All the winning films are collected into 4 programs in relation to their themes and run on full screens until the next September in 50 cities of Russia and CIS countries where the voting for the best short movie of the year in audience’s opinion takes place. The leader of the voting is given with Russian National Short Film Prize.

The Russian National Prize “Artkino” is awarded at the Opening ceremony in the film theatre “Kosmos” (Moscow).

Nevertheless after official awarding the institutors continue to screen the best short films collected to 4 thematic programs and promote them for release in film theatres and on television.

Consequently the festival helps aspiring movie directors to introduce their films to Russian audience.

At the moment we are promoting Russian short-length films in Europe for drawing foreign retailers’ attention to them.
