The opening of the Russian Film Festival “Literature and Cinema” took place yesterday, on November 19, in Gatchina, Leningrad Region. The hosts of the ceremony were actors Egor Beroev and Ksenia Alferova.
It is noted that films included in the competition programme of the festival will only be watched by members of the jury in person, as there are no spectators during the festival. In total, the programme includes 7 fiction and 12 non-fiction films. Most of them are devoted to contemporary musicians and writers.
As part of the festival, online events will be held, such as creative meetings and round tables about cinema. The festival will run until November 25, and on this day everyone can watch the closing ceremony on the festival’s official website.
