This year VOICES Festival opens on July 4th and closes on the 8th of July.

This year VOICES Festival has undergone some changes leaving the intact the essence of the project - the best of European cinema and interesting guests. The organizers have decided to bring some innovations in the concept of the festival. Despite the fact that the budget for the project has not yet been approved and it is difficult to say what resources the organizers will obtain, it is already clear that they have a responsibility to do even better every year for the city and to give more positive emotions. That's why VOICES Administration invented many new ideas that everyone will hopefully enjoy.

The basis of the Festival - the most interesting novelties of European cinema and interesting guests will remain. This year the festival will be dedicated to British cinema, and the audience will get a lot of surprises. One of them will be the return of Hugh Hudson, a famous British director, that was a President of the Jury in 2011. Hugh Hudson will bring his interesting film works and friends!

Also, several changes will affect the format. This year the organizers will try to make the Festival even closer to the people, will try to increase the number of places for communication, create a new meeting points between the audience and guests, as well as a significant change to quality of announcing films and presenting them to an audience.

VOICES administration will soon lift the veil of secrecy over these innovations.

Another change within the Festival is a change of the Program Director. This year beloved by audience and guests Igor Guskov will work in another project of Globale - series of events Présence Française in the US.
