Dear friends!

Online Isolation and Suffering Short Videos Festival is the online event dedicated to the fight against Coronavirus situation in the World. The main aim of the festival is to support people in their self-isolation during these difficult times. At the same time the festival is also dedicated to internal human psychological isolation due to loneliness or betrayal.

The festival is arranged by the same organisators who run the popular Russian International Horror Film Festival and Awards “DROP”. The goal of the festival is to entertain people in any form of isolation or misunderstanding. Submitters can be both professional filmmakers, bloggers and ordinary amateur videographers.

Terms and conditions: We accept only short videos shot by a smartphone or any other device not longer than 59 minute and not shorter than 5 seconds. Each video should have some concrete message. It can be of any genre. But all videos must tell some story of your isolation, describe your way of life in the present-day situation.

Prizes: The best 3 videos will be combined into 1 short film and will be not only published in the internet, but will be screened LIVE in a big cinema theatre. The 3 winners will receive sponsoring valuable gifts + diplomas. The other selected films will receive laurels and one of the following status: official selection / quarter finalist / semi-finalist / finalist / super finalist. The top 10 will be screened online on the web site and in the social media.

The submission fee for 1 film/video is 10 USD or 700 RUB.

Each submitter can send an unlimited number of videos/films.

The payment needs to be operated only after the submission is received, viewed and accepted by the organizators by means of money transfer to PayPal account.
