"Shape Of Life" tells about global natural processes. It is a statement that each person can help to achieve ecological balance, that his voice, opinion, actions determine the future. Guests of the film festival are Russian and foreign directors, producers, heads of environmental organizations, scientists, eco-activists, government and business representatives. This is a young and interested audience, focused on a healthy and active lifestyle, and looking for changes.

These are new platforms for dialogue, that will go along with various favorite formats: meetings with film authors, master classes on natural documentary filmmaking, exhibitions, lectures of scientists and specialists from all over the world, that are held not only in cinemas, but also in other places of the city.
