6th International Film Festival «On the Edge»

About the festival

Sakhalin is a place on the edge of the Earth, and it’s one of the most beautiful places on the Earth. But the contemporary world has no edges and no boundaries… Unique places, unique experience, and unique heroes – this is the motto of our festival.

Every person has his or her own “edge of the world”. If one search for #крайсвета (Russian for #edgeoftheworld), one can see different points of our planet through the eyes of different people of other ethnicities and confessions.

Iceland. The Republic of South Africa. Denmark. Australia. Cabo Finisterre in Spain, which literally means “end of the earth”. Outmost lands in various parts of the world.

We would like to further develop the notion of the “edge of the world” by extending it geographically, topically and scenically.

A world within the boundaries of Sakhalin Island.

A world without frontiers.

The Festival is organized under the patronage of the Sakhalin Governor. Established by the Sakhalin region Ministry of Culture. Held by the State Autonomous Culture Organization “Sakhalin Cinema Union”.
