The National Academy of Cinematographic Arts of Russia and the Department of Cinematography of the Russian Ministry of Culture are among the festival’s organizers. “Renowned film expert Kirill Razlogov will be in the festival jury, representing Russia.

The Director of the Department of Cinematography of Russia’s Ministry of Culture, Vyazheslav Telnov said: “We highly appreciate the privileged strategic partnership status of Russian-Indian relations. I welcome with much gratitude the film festival that is to be held within the framework of the Indian presidency of BRICS. Continued growth in prolific multilateral cooperation in cinematography is in our common interest and is in line with the BRICS member states’ common policy.”
