In Kaliningrad, kicked off the sixth short film festival “In short”. Solemn opening ceremony was visited by Svetlana Bondarchuk, Elena Liadova, Vladimir Vdovichenkov, Olesya Sudzilovskaya, Katerina Spitsa and many others. SPLETNIK.RU tells how it was.
If the summer national cinema season begins on the Black Sea coast with the Kinotavr festival, then it closes already on the Baltic coast – at the festival of short films “In short”. The festival is small – only three days – but it is always very rich, bright and interesting (it is besides being held in one of the most beautiful cities of Russia), and the venerable stars of the national cinema come to support the beginning directors and screenwriters.
This time among the guests of the opening ceremony were Svetlana Bondarchuk, Elena Liadova, Vladimir Vdovichenkov, Olesya Sudzilovskaya, Katerina Spitsa, Daria Poverennova, Evgeny Grishkovets, Alena Babenko and many others.
Before going to the cinema “Zarya”, where usually the solemn opening ceremony of the festival takes place, the guests gathered at a gala reception in the Cathedral – one of the main sights of the city. To the cathedral, the star guests traditionally “drove up” by the ship, which, taking into account the hot weather, was especially appropriate (and romantic).
