THE EUROPEAN FILM FESTIVAL «MAINSTREAM & UNDERGROUND» is one of the few festivals in the world that have a multicultural mission.
Russia has always been a multicultural country. Cultural space of country is open to various forms of self-consciousness. Cinema is a world where anything is possible. Our festival is a meeting of Europe and Asia, mainstream and underground. We are looking for filmmakers from different parts of the world. Different cultures — different films.
