Ekaterina Yakovleva, head of documentary broadcasting at RT, general producer of the festival, presented the award to two winners of the pitching of documentary projects, which took place within the framework of the festival. Artyom Korsakov from Khabarovsk received the first prize for the idea of ​​​​the future film “Persian Everyday Music” about the life of an ordinary person, through whose eyes the viewer can look at modern Iran. Second prize went to Anton Nikonov from Moscow for the idea for the film High Mountain Teacher about a young teacher from Dagestan who several times a week, under rockfalls, travels for 4 hours from Makhachkala to a small mountain village to teach. to the kids. Both winners will make films co-produced with the documentary channel RT, which will be screened at the next aRTel.doc festival.

The main closing film was the film “Brothers” by the author of the RT documentary channel Aigul Yerbulova. In the center of the plot are the stories of ordinary men who came to sign up as volunteers for the SVO in different parts of our country: from Bashkortostan to Primorye, from the Krasnodar Territory to Siberia. The audience saw how volunteer battalions were formed, how combat coordination was carried out, and why ordinary guys, yesterday’s programmers, businessmen and workers, were in such a hurry to help their own people in the zone of a special military operation.

“When they offered me to do this film, I accepted immediately. Because I believe that volunteers are heroes. People who don’t have any military specialties love our country so much that they dropped everything and went to defend it. It costs a lot. They deserve a film dedicated to them,” said Aigul Yerbulova.

Within the framework of the festival, five world premieres were held, including “Boys from the Vostok Battalion” directed by Oleg Nekishev, Mikhail Burov and the author Olgiy Kiriy about the lives of fighters defending the independence of Donbass; “Brothers” by the author Aigul Yerbulova about how volunteer battalions are formed; film-poem “Red November” by military commander Semyon Pegov; “One Step” by Ekaterina Kitaytseva about the seriously wounded heroes of the Northern Military District and Tatyana Borsch’s film “Donbass. That’s why I’m here” with the stories of journalists from European countries who came to Donbass. In addition, one day an absolute premiere was shown to the public, a documentary experiment, a film-poem “Red November” by the military commissar and poet Semyon Pegov, created from the cycle of poems of the same name, which the author himself reads.

Also, as part of the business program of the festival, Boris Korchevnikov and Archpriest Igor Fomin gave an open lecture on the topic: “War and Faith. How does the Bible help make sense of what is happening? And they discussed who they are, the heroes of our time.

Boris Korchevnikov: “There are no disbelievers in the war. When a person goes to defend the country from him, he automatically becomes a saint. At some point in his life, he made the decision for himself to go and give his life for another person, for his homeland. This makes him a hero and a saint. And God immediately settles in his heart and protects.
