ALTAN KHALIS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

by Mongolian Film Institute

Introduction

Altan Khalis International Film Festival (AKIFF) is Mongolia's most prestigious film festival which has a short film competition section. It provides a platform for aspiring young filmmakers to challenge themselves and showcase their burgeoning talents to a growing audience of movie-lovers. Ultimately, the film festival aims to establish a creative filmmaking scene in Mongolia. 

In 2013, festival director Ikhbayar Urchuud launched the first Underground Film Competition in Mongolia, with the goal of fostering local interest in experimental films and encouraging young artists from ages 18 to 30 to challenge conventional methods of filmmaking. Over the next few years, the competition evolved into Altan Khalis International Film Festival.  

The main part of this film festival is the competition section for short films made by Mongolians and international filmmakers. Altan Khalis International Film Festival is the only film festival to host a competition for short films in this scope in Mongolia. We also screen feature films by invitation, hold master classes, host discussions and organize networking events during the film festival. 
The previous honorary guests and jury members were celebrated filmmakers such as Golden Globe winner Fatih Akin, Ella Manzheeva, Peter Tscherkassky, Eve Heller, Julian Radlmaier and industry professionals such as Kim Young-woo, Maxine Williamson and Bernadette Schramm.

 

Since 2013, we received 1622 Mongolian and international short film submissions and of those submissions, 184 went onto selected in the competition section of our film festival. For the last 6 editions of our film festival, we gave monetary prizes to 37 young filmmakers. 


Altan Khalis International Film Festival will be held in its seventh consecutive year on June 4-8, 2019 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
