Next year, as part of the agreements, a special program of the festival "Koroche" will be presented at the Street Film Festival. Anniversary, X festival "In short" will be held from 19 to 21 August in Kaliningrad. The festival was the first to unite young authors and serious producers around itself and became a springboard for many young directors.

"For the tenth year, the Koroche festival introduces the Russian film industry to young authors and novice directors, opening up an opportunity for new names to step into big cinema, " says Anton Kalinkin, the owner of the Koroche festival. – But we see our task not only in the development of the industry, but also in the presentation of short films to a wide audience. The audience of the Street Film Festival is the very audience that any author strives to meet. With over 500,000 visitors annually, the Street Film Festival is the shortest and most direct route to the audience and a great opportunity for a young filmmaker to show his film across the country."

"Today Koroche Festival is the main industrial short film festival in Russia," says Alexander Shcheryakov, General Producer of the Street Film Festival. - It opens the way for young authors, gives them the opportunity to reach out to potential partners and producers. From the bottom of my heart, I congratulate the Koroche team on their birthday! Carrying the festival, despite all the difficulties, through such a period is an outstanding organizational talent. I am glad of our friendship, and I hope that together we will be able to bring a lot of benefits to young filmmakers from all over the country."

In addition to the direct promotion of the short film, the partnership of the two reviews is of an exploratory nature - the wide coverage of the Street Film Festival will allow us to study in more detail the behavior of the audience - preference for genres and timing. There are also plans to develop a joint educational program on the creation of short films, in which everyone can take part.
