The Internet Development Institute (IRI) will provide financial assistance to documentaries for the first time. This was reported in a press release received by the editors of “Lenta.ru”.
Within the framework of the “Smart Cinema” project of the “Knowledge” society, IRI will allocate scholarships to documentalists. The ten best works in the Image of the Future category will be awarded. Directors must prepare scripts for their documentaries, which will be considered in the first stage of the Smart Cinema competition. The winners will be selected by the IRI panel of experts.
IRI Integrated Communications Director Alexander Lyapin noted that documentary filmmakers should present their vision of the future of Russia and ways of its development. According to him, this topic has always been relevant to Russian thinkers.
In May, the commissions will select the authors of the best scripts. Screenwriters will have the opportunity to come to Moscow, where they will take intensive courses and master classes with famous filmmakers. In December, Moscow plans to organize a screening of prepared projects at the Smart Cinema festival.
