In September 2012, the Second International Festival of amateur and professional films "Arctic Cinema 2012" will take place in Arkhangelsk, Russia.It will be hosted by the Northern (Arctic) Federal University named after M. V.Lomonosov (NArFU). The film festival will take place during the International scientific conference "History of the discovery and exploration of the Arctic" (Arkhangelsk, Russia, September, 2012). While involving Russian and international experts and film makers, we want professionals to meet amateur film-makers. We believe that by bringing together cultural traditions from different countries in the Barents Euro-Arctic region we can attract the global community’s attention towards the life and work of people in the Arctic.Film contest will be arranged in three categories (including amateurs and professionals):
1. Social advertisement (a short commercial of maximum 3 minutes on the issue of
environment, culture studies, geo-politics and/or ecology)
2. Reporting (up to 20 minutes)
3. TV feature story or film (up to 26 minutes)
We invite you to take part in the festival "Arctic Cinema 2012". We do hope that the festival will help strengthening cooperation between universities in creative sphere and inspire the participants for further collaboration across the borders.
