Mission / description Millions of movies are shot and thousands of short film festivals are held all over the world every year. On average, several thousands of films are submitted to a film festival. So various good films can be neglected for whatever reason. Often selecting probability is like winning in a lottery. As a result, filmmakers are left with no feedback. It is a paradox that no one can hear you in an age of the Internet! The mainstream culture prefers attractions and casual viewing. For this reason, we’d created this “unfiltered cinema” project. It aims to promote films unpurified by festivals and producer companies. We collect films and do our best to show programmes to wide audience at National Centre of Contemporary Arts. We compile comments of viewers, cinephiles and experts and send them to filmmakers. The key point of our project is to establish a communication between the filmmaker and the audience.
