Cinema Perpetuum Mobile International Short Film Festival

“Cinema Perpetuum mobile” is an international cinema cooperation festival that gathers independent film makers and their groups to work under the theme of the perpetual motion.

The project is aimed at cinema cultural diversity and the promotion of independent auteur movies. Festival co-operation aims to cover all countries and continents from Scandinavia to the Cape of Good Hope and from Patagonia to the Aleutian Islands.

The participation in our cinema cooperation festival is free. Organizer of the festival is an independent association «Kinaklub.org», principles of which are cinemania, self-organization, decentralization, mutual aid.
