Almost all segments of film production are assessed, and a five-member jury awards the most successful ones festival Grand Prix, as well as golden, silver and bronze “Mimosas”.
Except for nominations and presentation of domestic films made between two festivals, numerous shows and discussions on the film production, as well as on other topics related to this subject, are also organized.
