The name "International Motivational Film Festival Bridge of Arts" reflects those topics on which we place emphasis in the program of a film festival. Interaction of cultures, art, and motivation in its widest sense are the main subjects. Of course, If to speak about a motivation subject, such cinema owes us to inspire, learn, to show that it is necessary to fight for in what we trust and than we live and even if the movie final not frankly positive, this movie has to leave in us feeling of belief. Also we try not only to reflect the main scope of a film festival, but also to feel global trends and to submit special interesting programs, which differ every year. So, for example, this year in connection with carrying out in Russia the FIFA World Cup and that Rostov-on- Don it is chosen as one of the main cities of holding matches, we prepare to to display the special program of the best movies about soccer at the end of April, made in different years by different countries".
