Feature film festival

HARD:LINE International Film Festival aims to present the various faces of extreme cinema.

The question as to what is meant by the term “extreme” can be understood by looking at the content of our wide selection of fantastic films. “Extreme” is often defined by an explicit splatter aesthetic but it can also be represented by unusual story-telling methods or an exotic visual language. Thus, we are meticulously selecting such examples that could be important in the future of the genre. We have not set any boundaries in our search and whether a film is a pearl of the independent scene, fun splatter or no-brainer, H:LIFF loves special films!

Feature film festival

The 2020 edition of "Message to Man" was likely not to happen, but finally, it did.

With all necessary precautions, thousands of viewers could watch the newest films from the competition and out-of-competition programs shown in Saint Petersburg. Unexpectedly, the online mode didn't mitigate the topicality of presentations and discussions. Master-classes by Viktor Kossakovsky, Lauren Greenfield, and Anders Østergaard evoked great interest both offline and online and allowed us to practice new forms of communication especially relevant for the post-pandemic era.

Jury consisting of many iconoclastic filmmakers of today (such as Anders Østergaard from Denmark, Adilkhan Erzhanov from Kazakhstan, Ilya Khrzhanovsky from Russia) made an unexpected and somewhat paradoxical choice, [...]
