how again to walk up to the spotlight they interview show on our team i'm going all day today my guest is kidding you it was a lot of. those out famous actors and directors have gathered in moscow today at the opening of the moscow international film festival for the first time it's so stink a world premiere of a hollywood blockbuster only does this say it's a sign of recognition all the events so do commercial movies really bring the festival to an us we're asking killers
a lot of the events program directs. the film festival has always been a place to show the best russian and foreign movies almost fifty years ago the legendary federico fellini brought he's even happier to receive the grand prix prize this year the event opens with the premiere of a hollywood blockbuster for the first time but critics say commercial films are not worthy of the last past. hello carol welcome to the show thank you thank you thank you very much for being with us well i would like to start where with the transformers everybody's talking about it today well it's it's the first time that they're that i would love to preview here yes there's a lot for best or of this scale is premiering in moscow and it's premiering at the opening at the opening day of the first i mean the worldwide premier to look at the world premiere yeah well first of all why did they choose my scale and i mean i mean the promoter is the right holders of the film and the end there why did you
choose to agree or you could manage the demands the both sides of you in it. these the who's the bride. i think about the first of the route and the premiere as the bride. of the market the russian market becomes very important especially for this kind of movies which are glass balls lead to children and teenagers these films have a huge success here sometimes a lot of succès elsewhere in the world was secondly the tide has come because i think six or seven years ago i spoke to people at one of the brothers and we discussed the possibility of a world premiere in moscow they said in principle yes but the time hasn't come yet and sold now the time has come as far as commercial or as we critics say czar movies and the festivals or one of the things that happened at the last come first
the roles that yearly from our the programming director of my kind of pose. said in the beginning that what changed is the relationship between the festival and desirable viewers because ten years ago it was something slightly and decent cresent successful zahar movie movie festivals now it's the rule for the biggest festival. to pay attention to this kind of product will you will you try to to to make it a tradition to open the must film festival with their world premiere. i think that it should be a world premiere but it might be a russian film world one year or a baby european film would come here i'm against general rule so i think this is the only hollywood not. so the cio perhaps the cheney's film world.
and what's important to say is that this kind of movies have specific qualities and well not one of the what it is a paradox because for example the beginning of think is century the great artist said or we're hoping that it will be art for the art's sake that all informal quality will be taken into consideration and in fact that's what happens in hollywood movies now because they repeat the same thing over and over again but only the quality of this scene of this will suit of the special effects of this erotic to see what matters here is this most of the russian filmmakers and full critics are generally anti home with me too you are no exception so no i'm not anti hollywood because hollywood is important hollywood is the transnational not american cinema and there is a thing there that's called mass cultural global culture which in film passes
through hollywood and bollywood in winging it and there are lots of other parts of cultures that are represented in our polls movies low budget movies experimental movies or even video art which is shown in exhibit should have been the whole school film festival in the. medicare program so i think that they versity of the film is what's important moscow film festival it's different it is one of the greatest events in. in the industry what is different from the end is what's its place what particular theatric own in fact moscow fulfill first there was one of the vulgar fourteen forty four fourteen they're called a face they will say does not not not officially that long but still they reach means that they have a gentle competition of. feature length films from all over the world they happen in a big film producing country they have the support of the local producers association
and the support of the international federation of producers of suspicions and there is only one festivals this guy per country and small countries don't have the possibility to. such a versatile of we the greatest festivals the client can vent assemble in film festivals and moscow as part of the second group which includes montreal in canada . no london is not part of the group. there and noncompetitive along of festival twenty five days so then look at our door in switzerland sunset in spain and karlovy vary in in the czech republic and moscow competes with these festivals for world premieres of interesting films and that fortunately we can't compete with the big three there
is any movement downside for the berlin film festival and the movement outside for the moscow also my hope is that if i leave low your mouth. will become the furthest in the world telling the world look my old girl there back in the second group. ok well let's hear more about one of the oldest telecaster was in the world and reported by spotlights union they didn't need them. you might have started writing the lyrics and proclaim him. you know the most important parts anyway by this monument to what camera in moscow that a phone making is clearly worshiped in russia and it is celebrated here every doing when dozens of movies from around the world arrive in moscow but the international film festival it was the soviet action film chip life which first got it go in in one thousand thirty five the first of a moscow international film festival the legend there is surrogate eisenstein on the jury prizes then went to the soviet civil war epic would also do
a fringe ruin their cool air quality and the disney cartoon three little pigs it was not until the one nine hundred sixty s. that the first of all became a regulator vent every of the year the soviets could enjoy a breath of fresh steam of the graphic fare from the west and see four in stars arrive in moscow for the record fellini's masterpiece eight and a half and won the festival's grand prize in one thousand sixty three despite a legend havenot that nikita khrushchev fell asleep while watching the soviet festival was not give all of its scandals like the famous episode when juno or bridgette or and elizabeth taylor appeared part you wearing the same dresses for soviet russia so the festival rebranded the first prize changed to the golden soon george and the price for acting achievements called i believe constantin stanislavski been awarded to would see the most stars like meryl streep and jack
nicholson the opportunity to see the latest films from around the world draws crowds to the festival venues the last moscow international film festival was attended by two hundred thousand people. the principle of selection of the films for the first of all today in any modern days having a changed use of calls. because in the soviet times. old the most important part of the first there was to see the commercial broadcasters from the united states and europe and india which people didn't see you know the real dogs shown in cinema the other fifty weeks tell us festival is something organized to see films that you can seriously really now the hollywood blockbusters oh all over the place so and we are showing films that you can see anywhere that means art house experimental
artistically interesting movies which means that the audience is smaller than during soviet times are because the audience of film buffs is not as large at those instant large wants to see under the league once again so does the basic difference the negs difference is there the festival has become more specialized the more professional there is a business school business where the festival there are several meetings of both film called productions people are coming not only to watch movies but also to business and it's a sign of the times are then the festival has become more diversified it as a. media part of the experimental films part of it the scene of fun don't go out of it is important and this this year festival especially build the bold contradictions the opposites joining sometimes in the same name is there's that's
well that's out there and so for example on the first day in competition after the opening and aids day of where showing a film made by former president vice love. of just cold leaving it's made himself a hero mostly in war so it's a classical drum. remain reminding some classical. things that have been. influenced that's left i was a playwright and they had to have the same they would have a film but i. know not. to rofl lots from peter films. likes to show the audience so it's a story of a love story that all this should go kill was let sex scenes and lots of love so a lot of the program director of the moscow international film was called life will be back shortly after the break so stay with us and we'll be back in no such.

ok thanks. chad. welcome back to spotlight i'm melbourne are going to just a reminder that my guest in the studio today is killing us a lot of the program director of the moscow international film festival here you have mentioned a number of movies that we'll see during the festival this year but what's your personal favorite and does it have a chance to win. a personal favorites are outside of could produce an area if i have favorites in said competition are not permitted to see its own eyes because it . is strange to influence the jury that there must be your favorite outside the competition also competition. lots of films that i find very interesting.
from different points of view say from an artistic point of point of view i like from the from the artists of all which will strongly encourage it's a black and white film but world from the. silent film to talk is very funny very well done with a very good bet on the other hand they find that their film program called the third age of both elderly people will be interesting for some audiences not for the teenagers of locals foremost but pulled all causes and especially habitable spot on the film a bold plan you so-called new board it's kind of cool comedy went anymore a can from old soul and there was also a film sex and sad which is considered the first erotic film in three d. never made. it so it will be a night screening of course not. but it will be one of the sensations of the
festival so here you mention children couple of times i have never seen a lot of children and megan. first of all you do really mean children are going to want to watch for that mask and for that we have a special thing that we have specials. greening us all ashore are often any mated film we want to show it twice once with subtitles for older audiences and one dubbed in russian for full children because children certain age country subtitles i would like to see more children in the festival but in berlin for example they have a special face the will for children a special first there was a teenage briggs is a part of the bill in the island but is a separate part of the berlin island away in arts and we have a film made by a fourteen year old boy in the problem of short films and we have a film great ninety nine year old the company's film director going to the scene
and all in the competition you mentioned a lot of films but you didn't say an anything special about russian for me it was what is your opinion are russian films russian filmmakers still relevant on the international market some are some are not and. the general trend the general trend in the film market is a search or we have i think one commercial director. while both of we've made a hollywood movie. as far as the first of all circlip is concerned we haven't really stand directors that are reverence for the. and we are trying to find new names and also new films that will go into the so good for example we have a film by a cellular one and he's young director from a school tropical show it's a large big film for three hours forty minutes a fairly desk and we weren't able to visit the right to make it shorter but it will
be a sensation on the other hand we have of the last film you call i have very good. films before that went to the cannes film festival usually now we convince him to give his new film it was the most girl of all for the daily different like in the section. from years we're showing to target the film of each of which was shown in berlin so many direct and we have a large panel rom of russian from said dunk you know how the filmmakers where we show all the interesting film made last minute international audiences when they go to watch a russian movie they don't expect a hollywood like blockbuster then they they they they would rather expect something something closer to art out there is that true oh yes of course there's the they're looking for something exotic they're looking for something spiritual they a looking for the list of course traditions are very very kind of these what are
the best countries to sell russian films to europe asia america was some asian countries india and china. is some special audiences in the in america but mostly festival audiences even if some films are sold. the big cities like paris and london where they have place in the cinemas for films like that or because the part of non european films and russia is considered a european on the european country not part of the. european union so we don't have their advantages that give the european union for distributed films what us how well let's remember can and can't give us give us a hint about the main trend in modern filmmaking what's what's the range when today . there is no main trend in art wholes movies and festival movies there is
a main trend in commercial paper products all of the main trend is the french are seeing things that have been successful waiting for someone to invent something you have a car is the main trend is. production as as far. first the role is considered a we see many exotic schools different types of great thing you names and old names that make new films because can is very truthful to the directors they discovered and we are trying to do the same in moscow so that's why we are showing the fourth film of going into thin clinical petition because he's naked island one and the warden was going sixty one between fifty years ago exactly. the direction a famous russian director alexander cheated it was here in the studio a while ago he told spotlight i quote the main trouble for most russian films is
that they lack a good story and quote do you agree with this assessment no because of course they lack a good story it's a problem for local audiences but as far as festivals are concerned they're looking for something different they're looking for something exceptional perhaps a film without a story at all or a full with a short story becomes very long. for commercial the commercial part of the business needs good storytelling. as far as their twisted part of it sometimes goals without it or against the media forum for example it's all films with no story in principle avatar. no story raj as the good guys and the bad guy look bad. oh well well you know how he would they call it
a story this is the main difference because this is what they call it now i mean. french movie called as clyde as played by sure lots of area in the program are the two eleven fall festival is a remake of the no old russian movie nine hundred eighty eight called dear union the seven year. yes which shows that the russian school of of our of screenwriting this is clearly was was very very. strong so who would you single out among contemporary russian russian writers who write for cinema although many new names for example you could have throes. of and also. the guy who made the. the screen play. for let's say the item did really just really into the story of who made several interesting screenplays but i'm becoming old so i don't remember the name but they
helped give us a purple to. put a year they're all saw all all the people who are writing stories on their. for example stories made the specially for the director such as out of works with but i gather all the time and belize and i'm in dad's a who was one of the best storyteller worked with. the sheet of now because it has become it from director on his own to his last film was shown in berlin and conditions so sun. has become directors of some script writers move elsewhere for example of a team of several it was in on writer works with the second film already a little value of the writing of victor believing he was a very good writer is very difficult to put on screen not some people tried tried
to generation p. on screen so there are good writers there will. be people who ride for theatre and then move to the cinema. and also there is this school of new drama. which tries to change the rules not to fold the check of type of writing and move elsewhere sometimes it's chucking something they don't like it sometimes they use the words of beard screenplays and in their own places but you quirks and the younger audiences fall well. i also want to ask you about the budget there you say that the mascot for the festival is trying to become one of the three main events of the year of this kind. do you have enough. money i mean what's the budget of the festival critical to be compared with there with con when nobody has enough money to get we we can have twice as much money and still won't
be enough the budget the official budget of the festival is known the state is given their own million dollars think of a limit of three billion dollars in dribbles for the festival this year as far as the sponsors are concerned it depends on the years but it's never more than the half of the sun. it's much less than has a budget to the official budget of both twenty million euros and if we can't everything it's forty. for example the festival in korea and johndroe has a budget of nine million dollars. which is considered not a big festival not in a festival but that's just the art house all of us so rule never be enough money but we should think about giving. the product for them i mean even better the money gives up the possibility of
a tell main problem is not that the main problem is this. state's rules in russia to ensure we have the person who will do the festival and this is. this is the problem because it doesn't exist anywhere that for whuffie year more than half a year the festival disappears people who do it don't do anything are not permitted to do anything not official representatives anything to get the right to do. this is right this is bureaucracy a lot of thank you thank you and and their congratulations there but you still need it happened this year thank you and just to remind that my guest on the show today with google our blog of the program director of the must tell international film festival there thanks but now from politics we'll be back with more work. and so i was dealing in and outside russia as alleged stay on car seat and safe area he was busy. playing.
