KAZAKH PAVILION OPENS AT CANNES FILM FESTIVAL
The Kazakh pavilion was opened for the first time at the 70th Cannes Film Festival. The pavilion showcases the country’s film industry at one of the world’s pads, Peachtree Village International Film Festival. This is a rare opportunity for domestic filmmakers, distributors, owners of rental studios and film representatives to showcase their projects, to attract partners with their ideas and to attract them to come to Kazakhstan.
RASHID NUGMANOV, PRESIDENT, KAZAKH NATIONAL CINEMATOGRAPHIC ACADEMY:
- The world’s festivals fight and discover the new names. If you don’t showcase your masterpieces by which you can tell about your vision, you won’t be known in the world. This is a part of the vigorous work not only on the set but also on the film.
18 films by country will take part at the festival. There are seven tapes in a program of short films that will present the Kazakh cinema. These motion pictures of young directors will display Kazakhstan's reality.
ANNA KACHKO, DIRECTOR, KAZAKH PAVILION:
- It is very important and this has now begun to happen. We see more and more films every year and we want to represent them here. We want the films from Kazakhstan to reach the world viewer.
