The organizers of the “Night” intend to demonstrate the achievements of the national cinema, whose fortune in the Year of the Russian cinema has reached a critical level. But officials seemed to be nothing to know or pretend that all is well. The Central venue of the events will be a Theatre area where you will install the led screen. The audience under the open sky will be able to watch “a Slave of love Nikita Mikhalkov, who will personally represent. Then the pianist Denis Matsuev will perform popular tunes from domestic films, and will crown the event screening of “legends of number 17” by Nikolai Lebedev. Also promising to show the film “Battleship “Potemkin”, and with a red flag in the final, personally painted Eisenstein.
In Gorky Park on the show “Mary Poppins, goodbye” in the format of a sing-a-long, viewers will not sit in a chair, and can dance and sing along with the characters of the musical. Will help them actors of “Workshop of Dmitry Brusnikina”. In Tagansky Park will present entertainment program in honor of the 80th anniversary of the film Studio “Soyuzmultfilm” will meet with its artistic Director Mikhail Aldashin and the winner of “Golden palm” Harry Bardin. In the Park “Krasnaya Presnya” show “Cloth Union” Michael Mestechko, which in some cities wanted almost to forbid as harmful for young people. In the garden of “Hermitage” will be the film Director Pavel Lungin. On the eve of going out to the audience he told about what will happen to them to say: “Film is no longer art. Youth refers to him as a pleasant pastime. Movie loses the property to be a source of tool culture becomes business”. Be held in the “Hermitage” and discussion on “the Revival of an optimistic movie. Chance the spectator in the age of high-tech blockbusters?”. So that instead of unlawfully lined nauseam “good movie” will come to its optimistic counterpart.
In the State Museum of A. S. Pushkin will open the exhibition “Movie. Literature. Vintage suit”, where he will present his collection of antique costumes, genuine accessories of XVII–XX centuries, used in the movie “the Scarlet flower”, “Princess Mary”, “Anna on the neck” and others. The premiere of the film Anna matison “Prokofiev: on the way”, the creation of which was attended by Konstantin Khabensky, Valery Gergiev and Denis Matsuev. I must say that Sergei Bezrukov and his wife Anna matison will deliver the shock. On the eve of the movie in Provincial theatre will hold an evening dedicated to Andrei Tarkovsky, who will be his son, Andrey Tarkovsky Jr., living in Florence.
The record for the number of impressions will be animation “Smeshariki”, “Battalion” and “the Legend №17”. According to the Minister of culture Medinsky on the website of the cinema Fund they collected more than 100 thousand votes and different from all sorts of rubbish like “suicide Squad”.
The Museum of Moscow has developed routes, which pass through Cook, Gogol Boulevard and other parts of old Moscow, where he starred in “the Pokrovskie gate”, “Moscow does not believe in tears”. Free screenings of the best Russian films will be held at 1800 open areas of the city, and would visit them not less than 500 thousand spectators. Will involve 20 cinemas, 16 parks, 37 museums, 22 libraries.
Vladimir Medina on the eve of the movie gave advice to Svetlana Druzhinina, who with his project “midshipmen-4” did not pass the pitching Fund the movie, but the audience began raising funds for her film. The Minister particularly said: “It’s a bad sign when, having received money for development, then people are not able to defend the project. “Moving up” Studio “Three Te” also received money, and then defended the project. And we expect that it will be more abruptly, than “the Legend №17”. Some filmmakers do not get the money the Ministry of culture, offended, announce a national collection and gather up the strength of 200 thousand rubles. So we did the right thing by not giving them money. We have to work more. Yesterday I was in Kaliningrad, on the closing of the festival “Shorter”. Gathered 5 thousand spectators, who sat in the pouring rain. So the movie needs the audience.”
