The message reads, in part:
“It is gratifying that your project has now become one of the interesting and informative forums organised in the Far East. It aims to become one of the leading creative platforms in the region for promoting the remarkable and enlightening traditions and the dedication that our cinematography and national culture are known for. The festival will certainly give Sakhalin residents an excellent opportunity to see the best films and to have live conversations with talented actors, directors, screenwriters, musicians, and artists.”
The Morning of the Motherland Television Films Festival is taking place in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk from 8 to 14 March.
