Greetings on the opening of 32nd Kinotavr Film Festival

September 18, 2021

Vladimir Putin sent a message of greetings to participants, organisers and guests of the 32nd Kinotavr Open Russian Film Festival held in Sochi on September 18–25.

The message reads, in part:

“A rich and exciting programme and a truly creative environment unfailingly attract the attention of the professional community and the broad audience. Kinotavr is rightly considered to be one of Russia’s most respected and biggest film festivals as it unites acknowledged masters and promising beginners. The festival presents films of various genres and introduces original perspectives from directors, actors, cameramen and scriptwriters on contemporary art, the cinema’s present and past, and its impacts on culture and our society.”
