The showing shall take place at the open-air stage in the October Revolution Park, and shall be free for all comers.
The main program shall take place on August 27, 2016. Out of more than three dozens of movies the organizers selected the films, made in different genres, sometimes with the opposite author approach. The viewers shall see documentaries and live-action films: dramas, comedies, war-historical movies, melodramas, thrillers. But every movie shall have Rostov-on-Don or Rostov Region as the background.
Rostov dwellers are very tender about their home city and when they see it in the big screen, they have special feelings. It was not so crucial, what is the genre of a movie, it is important that it reveals how cinematographic is our region. We are speaking about locations, and local talented film directors, actors, cameramen” – noted Galina Koren, coordinator of selection board.
Release showing day shall culminate with one more film premiere – “Opposite the Left Bank”, shot by the members of the “City Code (Kod Goroda)” motion-picture laboratory. This is a movie about Rostov, the Grand-Prix winner of the “Golden Apricot” Film Festival in Erevan, Armenia. The film is composed of the novels about a jazz trumpet-player performing in Kim Nazaretov ensemble, whose main occupation is a butcher at the Central Market place; myths and legends of the jumbo-house at Profsoyuznaya Street; story about the sacrifices of a young Rostov girl searching for Mr. Right and other novels.
