About Northern Character International Film & TV Festival
Northern Character Film&TV Festival in Murmansk has existed since 2008.
It was born thanks to some friends and TV- journalists from four countries, who realized their dream to create a ground for meetings and discussions, being eager to trace in which direction contemporary European audiovisual art is developing.
Gradually, it was the cultural aspect that became the main locomotive of the organizers’ and participants’ interest, and the festival became a meeting place not only for journalists, but also for filmmakers, as well as for the audience, i.e people living in Murmansk and visitors to the city, too.
The organizer of the International Film&TV Festival is the independent non-commercial organization Production Center NORTHERN CHARACTER.
The founders are Svetlana Soldatova and Yuri Erofeev, they have been organizing the International Film Festival since 2008. This is not the only project of the Production center. It organizers holidays, exhibitions, concerts and other cultural events. Here are some of them:
