Also presented is the experience of organizing and conducting the festival of educational films and training “MediaEnvironment” at the branch of the Lomonosov Moscow State University in Sevastopol. These special educational and cognitive events are considered as elements of internal and external communications of universities, developing the professional competences of participants and demonstrating the possibilities of using the concept of peer learning and edutainment technologies for practical emotional-motivated learning of students of media specialties. The authors describe the methodology of event preparation in relation to educational standards, linking the organizational stages with the formation of specific student competencies.
