Short Movie Club tries to avoid "the best of the best" way but we don't ignore it completely, sure. The festival’s jury awards the best film of every section. Nevertheless, the festival provides every submitter with an opportunity to show the film, discuss and get feedback in the case of visiting. Screenings are held at National Centre for Contemporary Arts, Cinema theatre “Pioneer”, Azgur Muzeum, art-galleries. Our team hopes to create a community, brotherhood of filmmakers to celebrate a spirit of indie cinema together. We accommodate selected participants at cottages in beautiful nature place of Minsk. Also, we compile comments of viewers, cinephiles and experts and send them to filmmakers. The another key point of our project is to establish a communication between the filmmaker and the audience.

Idea of the SMCFF
Millions of movies are shot and thousands of short film festivals are held all over the world every year. On average, several thousands of films are submitted to a film festival. So various good films can be neglected for whatever reason. Some times selecting probability is like winning a lottery. As a result, filmmakers are left with no feedback. It is a paradox that no one can hear you in an age of the Internet! The mainstream culture prefers attractions and casual viewing. For this reason, we’d created this “unfiltered cinema” project. It aims to promote films unpurified by festivals and producer companies. We collect films and do our best to show programmes to the wide audience at National Centre of Contemporary Arts. We compile comments of viewers, cinephiles and experts and send them to filmmakers. The key point of our project is to establish a communication between the filmmaker and the audience.
