Before the opening of the 16th international festival of cinematographic debuts “Spirit of fire” in Khanty-Mansiysk came a big “team” movie stars that you met me at the airport with bread and salt, cranberries, pine nuts and vodka.

This year’s festival is dedicated to love in all its forms — love for
life, love the Motherland, love for the children. But the opening of the festival was painted in a sad tone. Because it was dedicated to the memory of the key figures of the festival, its creative Director, Dmitry Solovyov (son of the President of the festival Sergei Solovyov). 43-year-old Dmitry died a fortnight ago and his father decided to open the forum to come up on stage and at home to conduct intimate conversation with the audience from the first row of the stalls — the ceremony was very personal and included live vocals,
choreography performed by students of VGIK workshop of Sergey Solovyov.

The word
took Sergey Garmash: “You know, it’s like going into class without the “pathos”,
somehow very different view of what is happening Sergey
started this evening, will also continue me. In my life never happened
very bitter news was connected to the moment of triumph, as
is happening today. I want to say thank you.

“Spirit of fire”
years gradually became not just an event, but a part of
history. At this festival the kids grow up, 5 years ago they were
volunteers, and today some of them already VGIK, someone in the movie.
Thanks to the leadership of the city, and personally Natalia Komarova for the support.
Believe me, we come here from a big city where a lot of lost and
much impossible, formatted and take with us something good. Long
years of life festival, good luck and good luck!”.

“Here are the sketches of posters, we with the son for several years did for “spirit of fire”, with tears in his eyes Solovyov said, demonstrating on the video screen work of son. — Today we
broke tradition by deciding to abandon the luxury festival fashion show
luxury dresses in luxurious women. I want to apologize,
but such is life — hard and mercilessly and we need to accept it. Our family, our festival had a grief –
died a very young man, one of the founders of “spirit of fire” and
part of my son. This whole festival we did together from the
start.

Americans have this formula: “the Show must
to be continued.” So we canceled the festival — let it show
will continue here!”

Burst into tears at the opening and Christopher Lambert, who came to a special prize “For contribution to the world
movie.” “For me, it’s very hard, I am overwhelmed
admiration for the art of optimism, courage and immense generosity
you, Sergey, show, said Lambert. I have a daughter Eleanor (actress Diana lane — approx.ed.) 24 years old. And , if with her anything
happened, I would have behaved the way you behave
against Dmitry. I
hope with me that will never happen. I’m so touched by that
you suffer, without falling into sadness. I’d like to get this prize
the memory of Dmitry, I accept it in his honor… Despite the cold climate, people here are hot heart. I
was born in Switzerland, where the snow had surrounded me since childhood and I can say
confident — the people here are even harsher than the cold!”

By the way, the red carpet laid directly among high snowdrifts, Lambert has shown terrific respect for the audience: more than 15 minutes, removing the coat, he was signing autographs to fans and posing for photographers. And then together with the Russian colleagues went to KTTS “Ugra-classic”, where took place the opening ceremony of the festival.

Guests of the festival were Sergei Garmash, Olga Kabo, Katherine Spitz, Leonid Kanevsky, Valery Todorovsky and other stars.

Opening the festival Sergei Solovyov said that “the program of the festival each year is unique, it Neubauer, it has no end. Because movies are shot all the time… Those
who shoots film all the time discontented, as they shoot him. Those who
watching a movie, unhappy with the way it is removed. And it is always alive
the process!”

“I first
in life arrived in Khanty-Mansiysk, at the festival — admitted Valery Todorovski. — I’m incredibly
excited because I always wanted to be here. It
amazing land and people, amazing festival!”

I looked online for about 20 thousand people!). Also in the program of the festival festival night, where the concert will feature musician and
