Welcome to IV International Short Film Festival Cinema Perpetuum Mobile!

We invite you to share our idea of promoting human values through art and independent cinematography. This idea is not new - however, it still unites hundreds of underground film-makers around the globe to join efforts in their sincere endeavor to see our world become a truly better place.

As before, Cinema Perpetuum Mobile sticks to its goals to

  • promote independent film-making throughout the world;
  • search for new forms and solutions in cinematography;
  • encourage cultural diversity in cinematography;
  • develop and strengthen connections between film-makers and film-making communities all around the world.

Cinema Perpetuum Mobile reaches the audience not only in Belarusian regions and cities, but in other countries as well. It is you who help us bring independent cinema to more and more people, and our community is growing due to the principles we incorporate in our mission: decentralization (horizontal structure of the festival), self-organization (volunteer basis, grassroot initiative), transparency (possibility to join the community at any time, and contribute to festival organization).

Deadline the 1 of December
Dear participants!
Festival Deadline is November 15, 2014.
