The All-Union Film Festival (Russian: Всесоюзный кинофестиваль; tr.:Vsesoyuznyy kinofestival, also known as ВКФ; VKF) was one of the most important film festivals of the Soviet Union. It was founded in 1958 and held regularly from 1964-1988. It was held annually from 1972 onwards, and bi-annually before that (before 1964, there were festivals in the years 1958, 1959 and 1960). Its time and location were determined by Goskino and the Union of Soviet Composers.[1]

There were four categories among which prizes were handed out:

  • Fiction films
  • Documentaries, scientific-popular films, and film-journals
  • Fiction films for children and youth (from 1977)
  • Animated films (from 1977)
