BRIDGE of ARTS regional selection committee is finalized

21 July 2016

The selection committee of the II International Motivational Film and Sports Festival was declared on August 20 at the session of the Government of the Rostov region. The chairman was the first Deputy Governor Igor Guskov.

Let's remind that the first BRIDGE of ARTS was held in 2015. The festival won “silver” at the National Award “Russian Event Awards” in the category “The Best Event in the Sphere of Culture”. This year the organizers expect more participants and wider screening program. Twenty countries have already confirmed their participation by now.

In August the citizens of the Don and its guests will have several eventful days: from 24th up to 28th of August film screening, sports and city events will be held in Rostov-on-Don and in nearby towns. Traditionally there will be the Business Forum of Film & Media Content. “The region aims to promote the development of the Don filmmaking, to create a film cluster in the Rostov region”, said Aleksandr Rezvanov. “We have everything we need for this: picturesque nature, good weather conditions, diversity of character types and nationalities. From this year we will become a peculiar “talent foundry” of highly professional actors - the All-Russian State Institute of Cinematography  has opened the departments for directing and acting in Rostov-on-Don”.

As Rezvanov marked, the Rostov region has entered its active phase of preparation for the festival.
