Snow Leopard Film Festival - one of the most promising and fastest growing film festivals. Idea of creating SLIFF is the desire of young and talented movie fans and to help original and novice directors, producers, screenwriters and those who consider themselves part of the world of cinema. The main task of SLIFF is to give talented people the opportunity to be agreed and get that very coveted ticket to the big cinema!

Snow Leopard International Film Festival not only aims at giving out trophies and certificates but recognizing talents and supporting the career of artists working in the film industry as writers, directors, producers, actors, cinematographers, editors, composers etc. As we are in the process of expanding our footprints, we don't forget to grow together with filmmakers.
