I really love the Pacific Meridian Festival. How can I become a part of it?

Audience Choice Award
The Pacific Meridian viewers also have a chance to vote for the best Russian film, so it can receive the Audience Choice Award – probably the most important Award for any director!
Before every screening of the film, nominated for the Audience Choice Award, each viewer will get a special ballot for voting. We ask our audience to tear the ballot a little, voting YES or NAY, and give it to a volunteer when you exit the movie hall. All your votes will be taken into account.
The best film will be determined based on the votes of the audience after all the screenings!
Since 2017 our regulars have a chance to use a special offer for cinephiles (people who love cinema, devote a significant portion of their free time to watching films, enjoy this activity, analyze films from different perspectives). The most ardent cinema-lovers, cinema club members, film school students can apply for Cinephile accreditation by writing a short essay ‘Why do I love cinema’.
Being accredited as a Cinephile gives you a right for:
- Complimentary tickets for two films per day*
- Complimentary tickets to workshops*
- Attendance at the festival press-conferences upon presentation of a Cinephile badge
* Accreditation does not guarantee attendance at a film screening, but gives an opportunity to get a ticket for a film screening. Please note that the number of film screenings is LIMITED.
