Other films presented in the first day were: Was A Touch Of Sin, Silent ones, Dark Blood and Heli.
The best film of the competition is traditionally designed to receive the People’s Choice Award. Since 2013, the director of the winning film will receive a special prize – “The key to the hearts of the viewers”. The symbol of this award is made in the traditional Russian folk art casting technique, one of the attributes of the Russian cultural heritage. On the previous edition, this prize was won by the film “Magnificent Presence” (director: Ferzan Ozpetek, Italy).
In the non competition section the best documentaries from all over the world, previous awarded with prestigious prizes, will be presented.
During the festival, more than 60 filmmakers from all over the world will participate in workshops.
