The 12th Eurasia International Film Festival will be launched September 24 in Kazakh city of Almaty. During 6 days of the festival, more than 80 films will be shown bringing together countries of Asia, Europe and the global community.

The motto of the festival is “Love as the basis of human life and a path for the harmonization of cultures.”

Both feature-length films and short films from around the world will be shown. The out-of-competition programme includes Asian, European and global panorama of movies. Eurasia will also present documentaries and a special programme for children which were introduced last year, reports The Astana Times.

For the first time in the history of the festival will be screened Arab films of different genres, including comedy, thriller, social-themed and others.

This year, the festival will become more democratic and popular as the organizers plans to bring it to the streets, in cafes and parks within the part of the event titled The Love for the City. The other two sections are The Love for the Cinema and The Love for the Profession with the former one being the main competition and non-competitive programme; while the last one will include a series of workshops, professional meetings.

The festival’s best films will be awarded by an independent jury of the Network for the Promotion of Asia Cinema (NETPAC), International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI), and for the first time by the Tulpar National Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science.
