WELCOME TO THE 39th VGIK INTERNATIONAL STUDENT FESTIVAL

To the organisers, guests and participants of the 39th VGIK International Student Festival. 

Dear friends! I cordially welcome you to the 39th VGIK International Student Festival. 

For many years now VGIK Film Festival has provided an excellent opportunity to young film makers from all over the world to demonstrate their talents, share their point of view with the audience and ask questions that are important for the young generation. This is always a lively creative process, that takes place within the premises of the legendary Russian Filmmaking University that celebrates its 100th year anniversary this year. 

It’s pleasant to note that each year the amount of international participants grows. This year 72 film schools from 37 different countries have sent in their submissions to take part in the Festival. Their works are evaluated by authoritative jury compiled of world famous filmmakers. 

I’m sure that participation in the Festival will become a significant milestone in young filmmakers’ biography and will positively impact their creative star! 

I wish everyone inspiration, interesting professional communications and discovery of upcoming talents!

Sergey Kirienko 

First Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration
of the Russian Federation
