We strongly condemn the Russian war of aggression on its western neighbor.
The situation in Ukraine makes us speechless. Who plays music, who makes music, is NOT speechless.
Therefore, we decided to continue offering both Russian contributions. Our audience will make the decision whether to watch the films or live events or not.
All festival proceeds from ticket sales of the two Russian films as well as the Ukrainian film contribution will go 100% to the victims of the war against the Ukrainian people.
