International Film Festival “Steps” will take place between 20-24 November 2015 in Kharkiv. It is the eighth time when the audience will watch hundreds of films about human rights, animal protection and environmental challenges. This time the organizing committee has received more than 500 fictional films and documentaries. Year by year the festival attracts more and more directors from around the world. In 2013 about 50 member countries presented their works. In 2007 Human Rights Center “Steps” founded an eponymous festival. Since 1997 the organization initiates human rights actions, international conferences, exhibitions and awards, publishes books and creates films.
Aims of the International Film Festival “Steps”:
● to declare democratic rights, freedoms and humanistic values in society;
● to inform citizens of Ukraine and the world about the current issues;
● to popularize films about human rights;
● due to films encourage adopting foreign experience in solving global problems;
● to support local and foreign filmmakers.
The program of the Festival consists of competitive and non-competitive films (Panorama) and Retrospective. The Festival`s rules do not limit films in form, length or year of production.
Besides films there will be several locations where we will organize lectures and discussions with directors, representatives of human rights movements and public activists.

In 2013 with the assistance of the UN Refugee Agency we opened a new exhibition “Ukraine – new home”.

New: calling for projects for S-3D movies, AR/VR contents and videogames!
The 3D Content Financing Market (3DFM) is an international co-production and financing market fully dedicated to projects for stereoscopic-3D (S-3D) contents. It brings together (1) producers with new projects for S-3D contents and looking for financing, and (2) financiers and co-producers looking for investment opportunities. Initiated in 2011, 3DFM is the only such market in the world. It is now in its 5th edition.
3DFM will take place on 14-15 Dec 2015 at the Théâtre de Liège, Belgium, as part of 3D Stereo MEDIA, the International 3D Summit for Science, Technology, Art and Business (www.3dstereomedia.eu). As in previous years, 3DFM is organized in collaboration with peacefulfish.
We are looking for projects for S-3D contents (movies/films, virtual/augmented reality and videogames) that have, at a minimum, a first-cut preliminary script, a significant international sales potential, and - for movies only - a budget of at least 500,000€. These projects are eligible for at least a poster presentation/pitch. Projects that additionally have a complete preliminary script and at least 50% percent of the financing secured are eligible for an oral presentation/pitch. The projects can be submitted by experienced S-3D producers, experienced 2D producers who would like to make the transition to S-3D, or persons with a demonstrated artistic ability.
3DFM also features other activities, such as a workshop on the financing and marketing of S-3D contents/movies, case studies in S-3D content making, the coaching of the oral pitchers, a networking reception, and visits of local (co-)production houses.
