In 2011 the Interregional public fund "Centre of National Glory" became the founder of the nomination "For bright patriotic focus". In different years the winners of the special prize of the Centre of National Glory were films which help revive the spiritual and moral, humane and patriotic values. In 2011 the film "The quiet gate house" with director S.Makhovikov was awarded. In 2012 the film by Igor Chernitsky "Second lieutenant Romashov" (based on the novel by Alexander Kuprin "Duel") was awarded "For bright personification of spiritual and moral features of a person". In 2013 the award was given to the widow of composer Isaac Schwartz — Antonina Nagornaya-Schwartz  — to honour 90th anniversary of the composer’s birth. Another award was given to film director Leila Nedorosleva for the film "The floating symbol". In 2014 the prize was given to film "Lyakh (Papillon)" directed by Vyacheslav Semyonov "For manifestation of the topic of preserving moral grounds of society in films". The film was based on story "Island Taiwan" by Yakutsk writer Semyon Yermolayev. In 2015 the Honoured Artist of the RF, film director of "Prince Oleg", Konstantin Artyukhov was awarded.

In 2015, with support from the Centre of National Glory and the Embassy of Serbia in the Russian Federation, in the programme "Special film exhibition" Serbian documentary " Troitskosavsk-Kyakhta of Savva Vladislavich" was presented. The film is telling the history of the town of Kyakhta, which is located in Buryatia, and about the destiny of its founder — the outstanding supporter of Peter the Great, Count Savva Raguzinsky. The name of Count became the uniting factor at one of the implementation stages of the project of the Centre of National Glory "Serving the Fatherland: events and names". As part of the project the monument to Count S.Raguzinsky was erected in Schlusselburg, the Leningrad region.
