Azerbaijan's Ministry of Culture and Tourism will provide an organizational support to the first Booktrailer Festival to be held in the country.

Minister Abulfaz Garayev, who met with the founder and director of the festival, Ruslan Sabirli, highly appreciated the holding of the Festival, noting the importance of realizing such an educational project.

Following the meeting, the sides agreed to establish a money prize to award the competition winners. Thus, the first place will get a prize in the amount of 1000 manats ($604), while the winners of the second and third places 800 manats ($483) and 500 manats ($302), respectively.

Booktrailers are short videos that promote a book or an author, providing a good illustration of the book content.

The Festival aims at promoting books, supporting and developing creative forms of reading, searching talented young people in cinematography and promoting bookrailers as a part of art and business.

The Festival is going to be held once a year. Films accepted to the Festival will be available on social networks. The Organizing Committee will first review the submitted films and present them at the upcoming event. Later, the jury consisting of professionals will choose the winners.
