The Russian Movie Awarded at the BRICS Film Festival

A movie "Tutor" filmed by the Russian director Anton Kolomeets has won a prize at the Fourth BRICS Film Festival which took place in the city of Niteroi in Brazil, from September 23 to October 9, with the assistance of the International Media Network TV BRICS. The awards ceremony was held on Wednesday in the Cultural Center of the Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro, the correspondent reports.

Ten full-length films – two from each BRICS country – strived for victory in this nomination. They were previously selected from more than 70 applications.

Anton Kolomeets’s debut movie tells the story of a 17-year-old teenager Savva who prepares for entering a higher education institution. The young man finds a foreign literature tutor on the Internet – it is a 45-year-old woman who gives private lessons. The picture illustrates a young man’s growing, the first love, the first treachery and the first disappointments.

"I did not wait for any victory, the most important part for me was participation", Kolomeets noted.

The director thinks that the jury highly appreciated his movie because it is devoted to "the subject of loneliness and searching for love familiar to all of us".

In total, the audience of the festival watched 54 movies from the five countries, including movies "My Friend Bualo" by Sofya Fedorova and "Lord Eagle" by director from Yakutia Eduard Novikov, as well as short films "California" by Dastan Madalbekov and "Old Woman" by Nikolay Savelyev. What is more, at the festival Russia was represented by the film "It Was in May" by Marlen Khutsiev about the first post-war days and the silent movie shot in 1929 – "Fragment of an Empire " by Friedrich Ermler.
