IV International Film Festival kicked off in Beijing

A great holiday for all movie lovers. The Fourth International Film Festival kicked off in Beijing. This year, more 800 works from all over the world were presented to the jury. However, the so-called short list includes only 15 ..

Among the famous guests are directors and actors from around the world. Around 300-hundred people: Oliver Stone, Alfonso Cuaron, Christopher Dodd and the famous Kazakh director working in Hollywood, Timur Bekmambetov. They did not bring their own films. And they came to Beijing only to get acquainted with China. And in the future, perhaps, take part in joint projects.

Timur Bekmambetov, film director, screenwriter, producer:
"For Russian audiences, and for filmmakers, China is a completely different planet. There is a feeling of a little fear of it. Because it is a powerful, interesting and peculiar culture, which you still don't understand a little. But in fact, half an hour after communication, we become absolutely That is, this fear must somehow be overcome. And, probably, it is better to do it with the help of cinema. "

Foreign guests say: while the Beijing Festival is still young, but judging by the number of participants, it is rapidly gaining momentum. This year, the jury watched 837 films from 88 countries. But only 15 made it to the final. And, as film critics say, all films are completely different in style and genre. From Europe brought a lot of comedies. Asia is represented by several life stories, some of which are based on real events.
