India organizes special screenings of films from BRICS countries

Documentary films by filmmakers from Brazil, China, Russia and South Africa were presented at the 4th International Innovative Film Festival in Bangalore. The program was presented by the information partner of the film forum, the international network TV BRICS.

The program of screenings of the 4th International Innovative Film Festival includes over 100 films from more than 30 countries of the world. Festival events took place from October 14 to October 17.
For the third year in a row, TV BRICS offered guests and participants of the International Innovative Film Festival in Bangalore a program of screenings of documentary films from BRICS countries. This year it included films from directors from China and Brazil.

TV BRICS's partner in China, Chengdu Radio and Television Station CDRTV offered 4 films to Indian viewers. Director Zeng Yinyin told the story of an Italian student who came to study at Sichuan University (Walking in China — Experiencing a Day of a Student of Medical School, Sichuan University, 2020, CDRTV). Journalist Ma Qixiao created a film portrait of the famous Chinese photographer Zhou Mengqi, who had been taking pictures of giant pandas for 30 years. He held his photo exhibitions in different countries of the world, among which are Switzerland, Japan, the USA, France and other countries, to draw people's attention to these rare animals and invite people from all over the world to come to Sichuan province, the homeland of giant pandas (Giant Panda, 2020, CDRTV).

Two more films told the stories of various foreigners who had moved to Chengdu: a French flight attendant working on domestic flights in China (Flying between 2 cities, 2020, CDRTV), and a German designer studying Chinese culture in Sichuan province (Frank Vollebregt, a Dutch Designer, 2020, CDRTV). Screenings of Chinese films were held on October 16 and 17 at the festival site.

Brazilian director Fernando Honesko offered Indian audiences a saga about his country's capital, Brasilia (Brasília - A Thousand Days Saga, 2017, Cine Group & History Channel). Director Fernando Honesko is known for his documentaries for the History Channel, Discovery Channel, Cinemax. In 2019, Fernando won the Grand Prix of the Brazilian Cinema Award. The film presented at the festival in India, told the story of the capital of Brazil Brasilia, which was ordered to be built in 1000 days. In 1955, presidential candidate Juscelino Kubitschek vowed that, if elected, he would build a new capital city for Brazil before his five-year presidential term expired. In April 1956, Kubitschek was elected president. Three years later, an army of builders built a new city, Brasilia. The film was screened at the 4th International Innovative Film Festival on October 16.

The screenings took place in the cinema city, a special Innovation multiplex specially equipped for making films and television content. It is the thematic complex at the Film Academy of one of the leading universities in India, Bangalore University. The festival had been held on the territory of the cinema city for the fourth year with the support of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting of India.
Within the framework of the 4th International Innovative Film Festival in Bangalore, the premiere of the documentary film of the joint edition of TV BRICS named Dostoevsky Intercontinental took place. The film was presented by Gennady Rogalev, director of the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Chennai.
