The MINIFEST is one of the oldest international theatre festivals for young audience in Russia. The 14th edition of this international theatre festival for children and young people is now calling for productions.

It was first held in 1989 at the initiative and thanks to the active involvement of Vladimir Chigishev, Chief Director of the Rostov-on-Don TYA from 1989 to 2005. In 1996 theatre and festival hosted the 12th ASSITEJ World Congress and General Assembly.
