The Calvert Journal Film Festival has announced its second edition of films. The festival will screen 35 films online over 15 days, offering viewers a journey across across Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the Caucasus, and Central Asia through the lens of the region’s independent filmmakers.

Taking place online between 18 and 31 October, the festival will screen 35 films and feature seven world premieres, including Routes, a feature documentary on migrant’s journeys across the Balkans, Ok Good, a documentary musical on life in Russia’s remote rural areas, All the Dreams We Dream, an animated short on the 1931 famine in Kazakhstan by filmmaker Asel Kadyrkhanova, and The Moon, an experimental film based on a Udmurtian folk tale.

The festival also features award-winning black-and-white period drama Nova Lituania, animated Oscar submission My Favourite War, and Rhythms Of Lost Time, an ethnographic film hailing from Tajikistan. Also on offer are Warsaw: A City Divided, a documentary on Warsaw’s Jewish Ghetto in the 40s, award-winning Romanian teenage drama Otto the Barbarian, and Cosmonaut, the animated tale of a retired Soviet astronaut.

In six of the categories, entries will compete for the prize of best film. Films will be available for 48 hours on the festival platform, with tickets for individual films available alongside wider category and festival passes, with an all-access pass costing £30.

Eye For Film is pleased to be a partner of this year's festival and full details of the line-up and access to pre-ordering can be found here.
