The long-awaited festival awards were given today at the gala. The best and the most memorable works sent to the festival were shown as well as the cartoon by "Saakyants Production" studio wich had the first night at our festival.
Artem Dolgopolov and Roman Palchenkov, founders of Freezelight movement in Russia, spoke today on the topic of painting with the light and taught common camera users the way to become true artists.
Meeting with the creators of Mr. Freeman series - Pavel Muntean, Vadim Demchog, Anatoliy Dobrozhan and Vladimir Ponomarev - caused quite a stir. The largest "Royal Cinema" auditorium bulge at the seams. People eager to talk with the "free man" were standing, sitting together at one seat and even on the floor.
As you know some of the artists not only send their works to "Multimatograf" but also come to the festival themselves. Two sisters, Tatiana and Olga Poliektovy from St. Petersburg came to Vologda for the first time. They brought two works to the festival: "Quagga" (cartoon) and "I see you" (video art). By the way last year the girls won the category "Cartoon" with the work "Tomato story."
"Multimatograf" fans do not get tired. And the second day cinema full of viewers is an evidence for that. "Royal Cinema" has become a place to empathize the characters and to evaluate their creators professionally.
Hey, we're going to tell you everything about the most interesting events of the "Multimatograf" second day. It is jury who starts earlier than the others. You can join them in "Royal Cinema" at 10:00 a.m. to watch competition works in the categories "The wild" and "Short film". Quite after that Alexander Kott, who is one of the jury members shows some of his short films.
Summing up the results of the educational program of the festival first day we can call it a cinema day. All expert presentations, except for those by Vadim Epstein and Vadim Smakhtin, in this or that way was correlated to movies.
The US director and screenwriter Mike de Seve, known for his work on the cartoon "Beavis and Butt-Head Do America" and several episodes of "Sesame Street", today told our guests a secret of creation a movie the audience will definitly love.
