Best production in journalistics and cinema

The Telemania Festival was established by the Institute of Cinema and Television (GITR) in 2003 and is sponsored by the International Academy of Television and Radio (IATR). In 2019, the festival received grant support from the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs.

This year more than 600 applications from Russia, The Ukraine, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Georgia and other countries took part in the competition. 71 entries were selected in the shortlist. The jury considered competition materials in 14 nominations: from news reports, blogs, documentaries and television programs to an assessment of the work of journalists, directors and producers.

“Telemania” shows not only web-series, but also helps to reveal the whole spectrum of new directions developing in Internet space: blogs, vines and talk shows.
