The aim of the Festival is to present films made by the film students from all over the world
to the larger audience, as well as the integration of film schools and exchange of experience between young filmmakers.
Confronting oneself with the artistic accomplishments of others is a good opportunity to observe the technique and craf
of the colleagues. It opens a discussion about the presented views as well
as an artistic side of the films. It gives a chance to be appreciated by a professional jury and large audience.
The aim of the Festival and surrounding events is also the integration of the participants by discussions, networking and having fun together.
