Festival start: 10 November 2020      Festival end: 30 November 2020

Online Isolation Short Videos Festival is the online event dedicated to the fight against Coronavirus situation in the World. The main aim of the festival is to support people in their self-isolation during these difficult times. The festival is arranged by the same organisators who run the popular Russian International Horror Film Festival and Awards “DROP”. The goal of the festival is to entertain people in self-isolation. Submitters can be both professional filmmakers, bloggers and ordinary amateur videographers. We accept only short videos shot by a smartphone or any other device not longer than 30 minutes and not shorter than 5 seconds. Each video should have some concrete message. It can be of any genre. But all videos must tell some story of your home isolation, describe your way of life in the present-day situation.
Now it is the 2nd edition of the festival. And we decided to enlarge the scope of the topic: the festival is dedicated not only to pandemic lockdown, but also to any sort of personal isolation: spiritual, mental, physical. It is dedicated to people’s loneliness in the World, to the human search of the essence of life and the source of love and freedom.

The best 5 videos will be combined into 1 feature film and will be not only published in the internet, but will be screened in Moscow at The World of Arts cinema theatre. The winner will receive sponsoring valuable gifts + diploma and a statue + sertificate for a free sponsored pre-paid production of a short VR film. The top 5 films will receive diplomas.
The others will receive laurels according to this or that category they will reach: quarter-final, semi-final, final, super final.
There are 4 stages of the competition:
1. Selection by organization committee
2. Voting by the star jury among the selected films
3. People’s national open voting online
4. Final stage of jury distribution of places among the top 10 films

Each video/film must be not longer than 59 minutes and not less than 5 seconds. Videos can be of any genre. But they must tell your way of life or some story of your self-isolation. And it should have some concrete message.
