Festival Description

The festival “Hero” is meant to be a platform for pondering and discussing the moral compass for modern youth. The festival organizers believe that it is one of the most important educational topics. Such values as patriotism, tolerance, and traditional virtues are discussed at all the festival events in some or other way. All the festival material is chosen in accordance with multi-genre and multi-cultural approaches. The concept of hero is represented in all spheres, and in all film genres (fiction film, animated film, documentary): a hero that inspires us to perform good deeds, accomplishes small and major feats every second, and helps us to determine life values, priorities and our moral compass.

The idea of searching a modern hero provides food for thought at the discussion panels both for cinema professionals and audience. The development of the film industry for children is the question of present interest for professionals – who is the hero for children and adolescents? A discussion club for children is to be organized after watching a film.

The festival traces its origins back to 2018 when it was held in All-Russian format. II International Film Festival for Children and Youth "Hero" will be the only international film festival for children and youth on the territory from Eastern Siberia to Sakhalin. The appearance of a professional film contest festival for children in Krasnoyarsk is another reminder of how important it is to make films for young viewers. Moreover, the festival supports those rare filmmakers who create and promote this part of cinematography nowadays.
