On behalf of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation I welcome the organizers, guests and participants in the Yalta International Film Festival “Eurasian Bridge”.
Over the years of its existence the creative forum has become an important venue for forging cultural relations between Russia and Eurasian countries. The organizers have founded the project on the concept of cooperation aimed at promoting the development of the art form as well as at bringing people together spiritually with the help of the film art.
For the sixth time in hospitable Yalta the festival will present striking instances of modern cinema and films that have become part of the classical heritage of our national cinema. I am sure that guests will do justice to the wide range of films screened at the festival. I wish all of you creative success and new achievements!
