Cinema and media experts worldwide have united to evaluate hundreds of projects from every corner of the globe. The 3rd season of Genesis International Film Festival will conclude with an offline screening of the top works and the selection of "Grand Prix" and "People’s Choice Award" winners. This season, GIFF is divided into three competitions: GIFF.Short, GIFF.Debuts, and GIFF.Docu.
