On the eve of the closing ceremony was attended by the Minister of culture Vladimir Medinsky. Coming on the scene, he joked about the lack of a dress code: Suit I have, but somehow invited”.

And the train goes “Vyacheslav Tikhonov”.
Medina wished the newcomers to ever their names are called ships and planes. Film critic and jury member Nina Zarkhi, together with the Minister handed over this award was “a matter of the film, which proves the arbitrariness of boundaries and taboos between documentary and fiction film” and talks about very relevant things. “Strange work” by Denis Shabaev is an example of the total authorship. He – the Director, cameraman and editor in one person. His characters are migrants from Tajikistan.
Documentaries are once again convinced us that they can be more entertaining than the feature films. “Is someone else’s job” filmed in a year and a half. Director and now continues to communicate with his hero, who spent a year in Tajikistan, he returned to Moscow, and above it hangs the threat of deportation because of the time of unpaid fines. I will have to go home, then to return to Moscow. Many do, but you need to change the name.
The Grand Prix was presented by the Chairman of the jury and the champion rolled Nikolai Lebedev, who not only films, but also blockbusters “Legend N 17” and “Crew”. Nicholas remembered that he participated with his works in festivals in the contest “Kinotavr”, but anything other than an Amateur of the prize “Large starfish” by Vera Glagoleva and Tigran Keosayan did not get: “Not prizes and not their absence decide your fate and only you”.
The authors of “Good boy” before the closing ceremony decided a good rest, went to the mountain, and the Director of Oksana Karas argued with his 16-year-old actor Simon by Treskunova (he managed to play 30 pictures) for ice cream about who wins. Then she told “MK”, made a bet on the “Student” Cyril Serebrennikov, and it so happened that she took the main award. And Semyon Treskunov did not expect such an outcome. He thanked the mother, who was in the audience: “If not for her, perhaps things would have been different.”
Nikolay Lebedev said the words that ought to the organizers of “Kinotavr” to say before: “it So happened that during our holiday died Oleg karavaychuk, cameraman Alexander Rybin, and before that Alexey Zharkov”. The audience observed a moment of silence, and applause. Aleksei Zharkov was not on the eve of the opening of the “Kinotavr”, but his name is not sounded on that day, although the festival was opened for the audience at the Theater square by the film “Caucasian captive”, where he is a great role. But better late than never.

The scene in the presence of Minister of culture Medinsky, a statement was made: the Year of the Russian cinema – the year of the decline Russian cinema, as evidenced by the level of the presented paintings. However, from the refusal to award the award of criticism is still by the majority of votes have refused and found in the competition films that meet their criteria. “Elephant” got “Zoology” by Ivan Tverdovsky, and cum – documentary “Strange work” by Denis Shibaeva with the wording “For the production of a documentary Opera “Les Miserables”.
