the Traditional scale of “Kinotavr” (but not creative scope) will be adjusted – the largest festival of national cinema in the world, gathering almost four thousand people, this year will be able to take fewer guests. Entertainment will reduce. All events will be held in a strict compliance with sanitary and epidemiological norms and regulations. For the festival services of the Protocol will be the main security Protocol, medical masks and gloves will stipulate the requirements for the dress code, and apparently this fall they will be a mandatory focus of all holiday toilets.
“it was important for Us to preserve the festival in its traditional form – no online-formats, – said in an interview to “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” program Director Sitora Aliev. – After “a Kinotavr” is not only films. This contacts, exchange of ideas, interaction, mutual influence of people of cinema. It is a platform where filmmakers can find producers, investors, distributors… Is a huge audience, and this socially important project: every evening the square in front of the Winter theatre came thousands of spectators and watched movies in the rain… At the cinema too many advantages, which are not available on small screens”.
Recall statistics “Kinotavr” last year. The festival budget amounted to 180 million rubles, and the number of accredited exceeded 3.5 thousand. The festival employed more than two hundred accredited media. The hype was huge, and the main issue in thirtieth anniversary, the festival presented the fact that “a Kinotavr” has outgrown its usual size, and it was necessary to take some measures to give more opportunities for specialists and spectators at the screenings and programs. Who could then to assume that a year passes, and have to think, on the contrary, reducing the number of potential audience.
