Sakhalin is a place on the edge of the Earth, and it’s one of the most beautiful places on the Earth. But a contemporary world has no edges and no boundaries.

Every corner of the world echoes back different events of our life. And cultural events too. These events happen everywhere simultaneously. Our film festival is an echo of the big world of cinema that resonates on the edge of the world. At the same time, our film festival embodies the answer of the East to the questions of the West.

We bring the latest news from Cannes, Berlin and Venice to Sakhalin where they meet the news of Asian cinema. Europe is the question. Asia is the answer. The world has long turned into a global village, but it doesn’t mean that there is no place for cultural originality in this world.

The festival is organised under the auspices of the Governor of the Sakhalin region. Established by the Culture Ministry of the Sakhalin region. Implemented by the State Autonomous Culture Organisation “Sakhalin Cinema Union.” Produced by IDI Pro LLC.
