The Stalker International Film Festival is aimed at raising awareness of human rights issues and legal consciousness of Russian society through cinema. Stalker Festival is a non-political and non-profit event.
The Festival is held annually in Moscow and traditionally opens on December 10th
, when adoption of the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”by the UN is commemorated throughout the world.
The name of the Festival is based on the human values which were advocated in the film- mercy, love to one’s neighbor, personal responsibility of a human being vis-a-vis society.
