The II International Film Festival (YYMKF) opened in Yakutsk. During his work in the republican capital, master classes, lectures of cinematographers and meetings with guests will be held. According to the YSIA news agency, more than 70 short, full-length, fiction, documentary and animated films will be shown during the festival.

The film festival was opened by the film by director Vladimir Tumaev "White Moss". As part of the project "Ours in the cinema" will be screenings of Soviet and Russian films with the participation of Yakut actors. These are the films "Footprints in the Snow", "Morning of a Long Day", "The Secret of the Ancestors", "Urgent ... Secret ... Gubchek", "Horde", etc.

The festival will end on 24 August. The emblem and the main prize of the YMKF are snow goggles - made of silver interspersed with zirconia in the shape of the constellation Ursa Major. As the organizers of the festival explain, the first glasses that protected from snow blindness were used by the inhabitants of the Far North and were plates of tree bark and other materials (including bones) with narrow slits for the eyes cut into them. First of all, they represent an integral subject of everyday life and traditional culture of Yakutia, and also symbolize the visual priority of the art of cinema and "continuous progress in the field of technological improvement of the film industry and the development of 3D cinema, which will become the mainstream of cinema in the future."
