the arms are not worthy of the mosque in fact. hello carol welcome to the show thank you thank you thank you very much for being with us well i would like to to start where with the transformers everybody's talking about it today well it's in it's the first thing that there that i did last preview here yes there's a lot for it buster of this scale is premiering in moscow and it's premiering at the opening at the opening day of the festival the world wait for me it's a well it's a world premiere yeah well first of all why did they choose moscow and i mean i mean the promoters and the the right holders of the film and. why did you choose to to agree or it's like a marriage demands that both of you in it. this is the who's the bride. i think about the first of the group the premier is the bride. of first of all the
10:32 pm
market the russian market becomes very important especially for this kind of movies which are mostly to children and teenagers these films have a huge success here sometimes a larger succès than elsewhere in the world. secondly the time has come because i think six or seven years ago i spoke to people at one of 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 genre movies and the festival's or one of the things that happened at the last cannes festival is that yearly from all the programming director of my kind of person. 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
10:33 pm
to present a successful tsar movie in the big festivals now it's a rule for the biggest festivals who 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 what i am against a general rule set up necessarily hollywood not. so the cio perhaps the chaney's film world. and what's important to say is that this kind of movies have a specific static while it is and well one of the what it is a paradox because for example the beginning of the thank you century the great artist said well we are hoping that it will be art for the art say that only the formal quality will be taken into consideration and in fact that's what happens in
10:34 pm
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 and what not to yes this is most of the russian filmmakers and for critics are generally anti home with me too you are no exception to no i'm not entirely holywood because hollywood is important hollywood is a transnational not american cinema and there is a scene that is called mass culture of global culture or which in film passes through hollywood and bollywood in lenient and there are lots of other types of cultures that are represented in our polls movies low budget movies experimental movies or even video art which is shown in exhibit sions and then the whole school film festival in the. medicare program so i think that they were. city of the
10:35 pm
film is what's important moscow film festival it's different it is one of the greatest events in the industry but it's different from the other is what's its place what's a particular feature on in first moscow film first there was one of the vulgar fourteen forty four fourteen there called a festival say it's not known they're not not officially that but still their reach means that they have a general 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 of festivals the sky country and small countries don't have the possibility to organise such a versatile of we the greatest festival of the client on the venice and berlin film
10:36 pm
festivals and moscow is part of the second group which includes moscow montreal and canada. no london is not part of the euro not the. there and noncompetitive along of long festival twenty five days so then look at our door in switzerland. and spain and karlovy vary in the czech republic and moscow competes with these festivals for world premieres of interesting films and i fortunately we can't compete with the big three there is a movement downside for the berlin film festival and the moment upside for the moscow so my hope is that if i leave low enough that moscow will become the third fest in the world only the world live my old girl there you know the second group. ok well let's hear more about one of the oldest felafel. there was in the world in
10:37 pm
a report by a spotlight on the jimmy that. it might have all started with what a marilyn and proclaim in cinema the most important of the arts anyway judging by this monument to what camera in moscow that of filmmaking is clearly worshiped in russia and that is celebrated here every dune when dozens of movies from around the world arrive in moscow for the international film festival it was the soviet action film to pirates which first got it go when in one thousand thirty five the first of a moscow international film festival had to legend there is sergei eisenstein on the jury the prizes then went to the soviet civil war epic but also to a fringe rene clair comedy and the disney cartoon three little pigs it was not until the one nine hundred sixty s. that the festival became a regulator vent every of the year the soviets could enjoy a breath of fresh cinema to graphic and from the west and see four in stars arrive
10:38 pm
in moscow for the rico fellini's masterpiece eight and a half and won the festival's grand prize in one thousand sixty three despite legend having it that nikita khrushchev fell asleep while watching the soviet festival was not devoid of its scandals like the famous at the sold one juno la brigida and elizabeth taylor appeared at a party 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 comes one thousand stanislavski been awarded to would see the must dos 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. who were. what are the principal selection of the friends for the festival today in
10:39 pm
a modern days are they ok yes of course because in the soviet times. most important part of the first there was to see the commercial broadcasters from the united states europe and india which people didn't see in here and there were a lot shown in cinema the other fifty weeks or so here at festival is something organized to see films that you can seriously now the hollywood blockbusters are 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 larger dogs instead of large ones to see underneath once again so does the basic difference the natives difference is that the festival has become more specialized the more professional there is
10:40 pm
a business school business where the festival there are several meetings about film productions people are coming not only to watch movies but also to do 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 film spot of it the scene if i'm dumb part of it is important and this this year festival especially build the ball around contradictions the opposites joining sometimes in the same name is there sex we don't have that there so for example in the first they'd competition after the opening of the knaves they were showing a film made by a former czech president vaclav havel just called leaving it's about himself here was mostly and so it's a classical drum beat chikor vienna. remain reminding some
10:41 pm
classical. things that have been the influence of us love havel as a playwright and on the other hand the same day we have a film by john mahler bar on it no knock. of lots from theater films who likes to show their audiences so it's a story of a love story and on the should go killer was let sex scenes and lots of blood says kill and i was a lot of the program director of the moscow international film festival spotlight will be back shortly after the break so stay with us and we'll be back in no time. wealthy british scientists not. by.
10:42 pm
market why not. come to. find out what's really happening to the global economy with max concert for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines tune into kaiser report. to.
10:43 pm
welcome back to the spotlight i'm alvin often just a reminder that my guest in the studio today is. the program director of the moscow international film festival hill 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. my personal favorites outside of competition if i have evidence inside the but there's not a lot but i didn't say. that as stripes looking for. the jury can you can e-mail us they're your favorites outside the competition if you felt so the competition there
10:44 pm
were lots of firms that they find very interesting. from different points of view let's say from an artistic point of point of view or like from the film the artist which was shown in cannes it's a black and white film about the present from the. silent film to the talk is a very fun very well done with a very good act on the other hand they find that their film will do a program called the third age both elderly people will be interesting for some audiences not for the teenagers of dance for once but do the opposite and especially the film about the so-called new ball it's kind of satirical comedy when tiny moderator from cannes also 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
10:45 pm
a night screening of course not children but it will be one of the sensations of the vestal so he you mentioned children couple of times i have never seen a lot of children on a. full festival you do really mean children are going to want to watch films of moscow from vestal we have a special something that we we have a special screening not all of them 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 festival for children a special festival for teenagers that's really separates it's a part of the balloon island but it's a separate part of the berlin island away not and wished. i have a film made by a fourteen year old boy in the problem of short films and we have
10:46 pm
a film by ninety nine year old the company's film director going to see dog in the in the competition you mentioned a lot of films but you didn't say anything special about russian for makers what it is your opinion are russian films russian filmmakers still relevant on the international market some are some are not. the general trend but the general trend in the film market is a such or we have i think one commercial director. robert of who even made hollywood movies. as far as the first of all circuitries concerned would have at least ten directors that are evident for the circuit and we are trying to find new names and also new films that will go into the circuit for example have a film by selling a lot of money he is a young director the film is called chop it will show it's a large big film for three dollars forty minutes
10:47 pm
a fairly desk and we weren't able to go to visit the rector to make it shorter but it will be a sensation on the other hand we have of the last film but you call i have every kid whose films before that went to the cannes film festival usually now we convince him to give his new film involves the moscow. daily different type in the section the goa premiers we're showing the star get the film of each of which was shown and go in so many direct and we have a large puddle rommel's russian from said the donkey nor house of filmmakers where we show all the interesting film made last night international audiences when they go to watch a russian movie they don't expect a hollywood like blockbuster then they they there they would rather expect something something closer to our house is that true oh yes of course that was the . they're looking for something exotic they're looking for something spiritual they
10:48 pm
are looking for through a list of koskie traditions something very very very little please 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. and the big cities like paris and london where they have place in the cinemas for films like that or because they're part of non european films and russia is considered a european on the european country not bad of the. european union so we don't have their advantages that give the european union for distributing films that are not in the quarters well let's remember can add that can give us give us a hint about the main trend in modern filmmaking what's going to in today. there is
10:49 pm
no main trend in art holes movies and festival movies there is a main trend in commercial type of products all of the main trend is the french are seeing the things that have been successful waiting for someone to invent something you saw avatar is the main trend of this part of production as far as the festival landscape is considered a we see many exotic schools different diets of field directing new names and old names that make new films because cannes 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 a fourth film of connectivity and doing the competition because he is naked island won an award in moscow and sixty one. between fifty years ago exactly. the direction a famous russian director alex who cheated it was here in the studio
10:50 pm
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 that looking for something different they're looking for something exceptional perhaps a film without a story at all or if earl with a short story really becomes very long. for commercial the commercial part of the business needs good storytelling. as far as they're to stick but of it sometimes goes without it or against the media forum for example it's all films with those story in principle avatar. there are no story around that the good guys and the bad guys know about that it's. the world in ollywood they call it
10:51 pm
a story this is the main difference because this is what they call it that this is not i mean that's an. affront movie called as clyde has played by sure lots of error in the program of the two eleven moscow fall festival is a remake of an old russian movie nine hundred eighty eight who called dear you know in the silly game the others which shows that the russian school of our screenwriting the sunday schools who really 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 thrown ski of and also. the guy who made. of the screen play. for let's say that i had in the religious really just story who made several
10:52 pm
interesting screenplays but i'm becoming old saw don't remember them but they hope to give us a. good day here they're all saw all the people who are writing stories on. for example stories made this specially for the director such as out of works with but i gather all the time and the examine dives who was one of the best storyteller worked with. vadim of the shit of now because it has become a film director on his own and to his last film was shown in berlin and petition so some script writers become directors some script writers move elsewhere for example of a team of several who is in on right works resume on the second film or radio world argot of the writing of victor believe in who is a very good writer is very difficult to put on screen look at some people tried
10:53 pm
ginsburg tried to pull generation beyond screen so there are good writers there was some green writers there would be people who ride for theatre and then move to cinema. and also there is this school of new drama. which tries to change the rules not to fold the chekov type of writing and to move elsewhere sometimes is chucking something they don't like is something they use the words in their screenplays and. places but you two works and the younger audience is full well. i also wanted to ask you about the budget you say that the masquer film 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 kind of going to be compared with there with con when nobody has
10:54 pm
enough money you know we're we can have twice as much money it's still won't be enough the budget the official budget of the festival is known the state is given their own c million dollars for violent of three million dollars in dribbles for the festival each year as far as the sponsors are concerned it depends of the years but in fact it's never more than the half of this. it's much less than the budget fishel budget of both twenty million euros and if we count every think it's forty million. for example is a festival in korea and johndroe has a budget of one million dollars. which is considered not a big festival not in a festival but that's just the art house local festival so there will never be enough money but we should think about giving the. product
10:55 pm
for the money and divin better the bunny gives up the possibility but the main problem is not that the main problem is this. state's rules in russia that each year we have to pass a separate and who will do the festival and this is this is that this is the problem because it doesn't exist and you wear that for how for a year more than half a year the festival disappears the people who do it don't do anything are not permitted to do anything not official representatives anything to get the right to do. well there is no this is right this is bureaucracy a lot. thank you thank you can you lend their congratulations there that you still made it happen this year thank you and just a reminder that my guest on the show today was killed off the longer the program director of the moscow international film festival that's open now from politics to back with more than can. inside what's going on in and outside russia so let's stay
10:56 pm
on our seat and take care. to. move.

11:00 pm
a speech to the nation announcing his plan his timetable for withdrawing troops from afghanistan and the mainstream media actually noticed this time. tonight's the night president obama outlines the beginning of the end of u.s. military involvement in afghanistan now sources tell c.n.n. that the president will announce ten thousand american troops will be coming home by the end of this year and three months our troops will begin to come home tonight president obama is planning to make good on the promise he made in december two thousand and nine years of debate over iraq and terrorism have left our unity on national security issues in tatters low the cost is enormous congressman hunter as you know but the argument is that if you draw down too quickly and you walk away from it now that everything we've spent so far especially the lives that have been given. that becomes a waste. you know i'm not for some of these people it actually seems like.
