We are back from Directors Lounge: Берлин-Петербург, our first row of screenings in this amazing town. The festival, organized by our hosts, Tour de Film and the prestigious Rodina Cinema house, was one of our most successful events so far, in terms of audience as well as in terms of dialogue and exchange. RODINA cinema house is considered to be the major venue among other cinemas specialized in world classic films, art house and contemporary experimental film works. But it was first and foremost the tremendous efforts of Marina Korotkova and Alexei Dmitriev that made our stay unforgetable and all screenings as well as the accompanying discussions cineastic highlights in the book of Directors Lounge. This far too short stay is for sure the beginning of a long relationship between Berlin and Saint Petersburg.
