The II Educational forum «Movie time» will be held from 5 to 11 September in Kazan within the XII International Film Festival at the «Mir» cinema site. The first such forum took place last year, and it has already become not only an interactive platform for communication between filmmakers of Tatarstan, masters of the Russian film industry and general public, but also a laboratory for movie making. As a result a short movie under Alexei Barykin’s direction was filmed in just one week by a team of Kazan young filmmakers.
