“After the success of the film at the Berlin festival and
the SXSW festival in Austin American, “Profile” received a lot of invitations
other international competitions and shows. Last week was screened in Karlovy vary
Vary, now we are here in Switzerland, then the film will go to Canada, France,
Spain, England, says producer Olga Harina. Very interesting to see the reaction of the audience
in different countries. It is actually the same as the Internet we all
one, and our behavior in it, our openness and vulnerability, the threats that
he is, fears that are born into it, have no nationality. Our
the film’s innovative form — the action takes place on the computer screen heroines,
Skype, social networks, messengers. The audience is immersed in our world in
minutes, that’s the effect of just taking someone else’s
online-life. Usually she’s closed: remember how turn away from
you your phone the person standing next to the subway, or how do you feel when
write a personal message in Facebook in the workplace, and suddenly I hear that you have
behind coughing colleague. Now imagine that your desktop was the size of
with the movie screen, and hundreds of people in the theater looking over your every action.”

“After yesterday’s show we were approached
organizers of other festivals, said that watching the fate of a film that
want to see the picture, says Timur Bekmambetov. It is very important that
meetings were held with representatives of Swiss investment funds
interested in technology, our new cinematic language, and
now I want to develop it together with us.”

In addition, the festival in Neuchatel hosted the master class, which held
Timur Bekmambetov and Olga Harina. “The first film format
Screenlife “Remove from friends” was an absolute creative experiment. In
the process of its creation was born a new film language with its own rules. It is possible
to tell stories in completely different genres that we tried
implement the following seven projects are currently ready.
In parallel it took the development of the technical component: to make
the film-making process more efficient, was developed and patented
special application for Assembly programs, —said Timur
Bekmambetov. In the coming months, we
planned to launch another 14 projects, and, in particular, need
new voices – talented film makers who are willing and able to tell
the history of the language Screenlife. We’re talking about the rules of the language and its features
our workshops yesterday in Neuchatel, and before that in Alma-ATA, Los Angeles,
