Specific Characteristics Recognized by FIAPF (International Federation of Film Producers Associations) as Competitive Spezialised Feature Film Festival.

Evaluation Molodist is a festival of young cinema with a lot of short student and experimental films. Interesting special programs and good opportunities to meet Eastern European filmmakers. Good national media coverage (TV and print). Especially the young audience is attracted by the festival; easy and friendly atmosphere. Although occasionally organizational difficulties occur, the festival offers its local and international visitors a good opportunity to screen current films from Eastern Europe.
