International Film Festival
Won Together
named after Vladimir Menshov


International Film Festival "Won Together" named after Vladimir Menshov takes place in Sevastopol, on the Black Sea coast. In oktober 28 - november 04, 2022 we are approaching our XVII edition. During 17 years since its foundation the Festival turned from a very small and local to international event, year by year involving more filmmakers and significantly widening its geography.

The Festival is held by EATR (Eurasian Academy of TV&Radio) and supported by Ministry of Culture.


The Festival has very deep historical roots and one part of its program “Memory” is traditionally devoted to historical films, another one “Reflection” zooms in
contemporary subjects.

We are very keen to explore the live topics for people today throughout the world – their worries, problems, exploits, good deeds and the ways people choose in solving their tasks. That is especially interesting as a comparison in time perspective – people, issues and values of generations – then and now – differences and commons. As well we always appreciate stories on culture, sport, achievements, overcoming, environment and other live topics.

We are very welcoming everybody who shares our interest to these issues to participate in the Festival and become our friend.


Won Together acts today in support of international professional cooperation in cinematography and TV and for the benefit of Documentary and TV films.


Won Together is a festival initially founded by Sevastopol veterans in memory of common international exploit at World War II.

For its long history (17 years) it performed a huge amount of films on historical, analytical and cultural issues, connected a number of professionals from all over the world and, within the time, transformed of course to become contemporary and notable event of nowadays.

Even though a part of the Festival program is traditionally devoted to historical events, an accent of other part of films is focused on today’s life, people in today’s world with their tasks and problems to solve, people who even in hard circumstances tend still to make life beautiful – as they understand it, as they can do it despite all challenges and obstacles.
