The open Russian film festival Kinotavr will take place in Sochi from June 1 to June 8.
The well-known film director Andrei Zvyagintsev will be the chairman of the jury of the 25th Kinotavr.
He is going to hold a workshop for beginning cinematographers. Workshops have traditionally become an integral part of the festival’s out-of-competition program and attract a great number of listeners.
The festival will also present the book Elena. History of Creation of the Film by Andrei Zvyagintsev. Its authors are the film director, the second screenwriter Oleg Negin and the cameraman Mikhail Krichman. The book is based on interviews, diary entries, illustrated text of the film script, as well as workshops for cinematographers and conversations with wide audience.
It should be noted that Zvyagintsev’s new film Leviathan will present Russia at the 67th International Cannes Film Festival in May.
The open Russian film festival Kinotavr has been held annually since 1989.
