The main competitive program of the film festival has included  12 movies altogether. In particular, works by Alexey Fedorchenko, Alexander Veledinsky, and Taisiya Igumentseva will compete for the Grand Prix of the festival.

The jury of the main competition will be headed by the illustrious film director Alexander Mitta. The festival will be crowned with Dmitry Konstantinov's movie Farewell.

This year the organizers of Kinotavr have announced a few innovations.

For the first time in 24 years of Kinotavr existence the People's Choice Award will be handed. The films that have not been included into the main program but have been actively voted for by the viewers will be up for the award.
