About the St. Anna Festival

The St. Anna Festival for Student and Debut Films was established in 1993. It is held annually in Moscow at the end of February. The Festival is open to all student and debut films produced in the preceding year in the Russian Federation, the Commonwealth of Independent States, and the Baltic Republics. Films are accepted for screening in three categories (regardless of length, genre, medium, or academic level of the student): animation, fiction film, and non-fiction film.

In the six years of its existence, the Festival has become the premier venue for introducing works by the youngest generation of Russia's filmmakers. This is as much due to its policy of accepting works from all of the media, as it is to the consistently high-level of professionalism expected of and demonstrated by the Festival's juries.

The Festival is sponsored by the Russian Federation Union of Filmmakers, the Confederation of Republican Unions of Filmmakers, Kino-Center, the State Institute for Filmmaking (VGIK), and Studio A-B-A.
