ArmInfo. Golden Apricot is turning into a good international festival,
Programme Director of the Moscow Film Festival Kirill Razlogov told
ArmInfo correspondent.

The festival has developed, he said. Its peculiarity is that it cannot
develop as the regional festival of Transcaucasia because of very
complicated relations with neighbors. It is a regional-ethnic
festival, the festival of Armenians worldwide. “But the most important
thing is that it is not restricted to Armenian topics, but is turning
into a good international festival”,- he stressed. When assessing the
competition program of Golden Apricot, Razlogov said: “I know that
there were certain difficulties with provision of the film copies, but
eventually, this has become a quite worthy program”,- he said. As
regards the negative aspects of the festival, Razlogov pointed out the
problems that arose in connection with Claudia Cardinale’s visit.
“Some ceremonial things arose, and the festival was unready for them
at the beginning, because by its nature the festival is homish and
friendly. And it was difficult to cope with the general political
standards. But this is the payment for success”,- said the film
expert.
