This year, there are more than 50 films in the festival, including those that aren't involved in the competition. A professional jury consisting of media, veterans of the industry and viewers will evaluate the creativity of each competing, Oblgazeta.ru reports.

In the final stage of the competition, all jury members will combine to determine the overall winner of prizes for the most skills and citizenship and for the best non-military or war movie.

Some of the movies in the festival include "General Sergei Wojciechowski - A Soldier and a Democrat," which was prepared and submitted by the General Consulate of the Czech Republic in Yekaterinburg and "The Balkan Pain," submitted by the Leo Khabarova studio, according to Oblgazeta.ru.

A film can be considered for this year's festival if it is shown there for the first time and is related to cartoons about the war. Special programs include "Dedicated to the Great Victory," which is a series of short animated films created by the students of Ural State Academy of Architecture and Art. The festival will close on Sunday.
