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!

HARD:LINE International Film Festival is no warehouse festival where the priority is to show as many films as possible but rather [...]

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, [...]

NEW - Please read carefully about ReAON (ReAnimania ONline Animation Film Festival).

ReAnimania International Animation Film Festival of Yerevan was founded by cartoonist, painter and animator Vrej Kassouny in 2008.

Armenia’s history in animation had begun 70 years prior, with the release of the first Armenian film, Lev Atamanov’s (né Levon Atamanyan) The Dog and the Cat in 1938.

In striving to honor the craft in both spirit and in name, the Festival has since reintroduced the art of animated filmmaking to Armenian audiences.

The festival includes a selection of highly anticipated non-commercial features and shorts with 15 in-competition and non-competition programs and a Market Forum for Animation Professionals (MARANI). The festival also offers an array of practical [...]
