The TRAVEL FilmFest collects the best travel/lifestyle films from around the world, which were created both by professionals and by enthusiasts, and helps to get them across to the audience.
Our festival is held all year round. The provisional results are summed up once per quarter, at the end of the season – winter, spring, and summer. Every autumn the best films are shown on a big screen, and the winners are determined.
The films, which were selected to participate in the festival, will be uploaded to be displayed on our website and in the social networks – as a complete artwork (only with the consent of the author) or as a trailer for the wide view and discussion. Authors will be able to obtain feedback from the thankful or displeased viewers.
We admit only the films about travels, both modern and historical ones. As well as those films, where travel is an important part of the synopsis. Fiction, production, animated and documentary films on any types of travel and adventures on the water and in the air, on land and under it, in the mountains and forests, on seas, rivers, lakes, swamps, about hiking, ski trek, rides on public transport, on vehicles and motorcycles, bikes, hitch-hiking, bus tours, pilgrimage tours, round-the-world trips… as well as films about cultures, traditions, lifestyle, history, countries, emigrants, world around us.
Not all creators of travel films are necessarily the professionals, who work in the movies industry or on television. This is just a hobby for the majority of contestants. However, this does not mean that their films are worse. The original story that is told in the film plays a far more important role than its budget or the awards of its creator. You can make a good film even if you do not have a large budget, stellar cast and a large production team. You hold the keys to the kingdom. Go ahead!
