For more than a decade, the documentary film festival has brought us the stories of musical genres, fashion designers, architects, athletes, entrepreneurs and passionate people. “Many films in our program tell us that faith in one’s own ideas, the power of cooperation and mutual help is what helps to save oneself at all times. And we agree with that”, say the organizers of the Beat Film Festival. This season, together with Tochka Bank, they announced an open call for the creation of short films about entrepreneurial partners. The winning films will tell about people who were able to stay as a team and do business together, despite the difficulties. You can follow the news of the festival here.
