On Friday 10 September at Chapel Arts Gallery in Cheltenham, the Sochi International Film Festival and Cheltenham Twinning Association launched their season of Russian film, art and culture which will culminate in the Sochi Film Festival UK awards being held in Cheltenham in February 2022.
The event was very successful with a good audience including Russian language students from Balcarras school who met with Luba Balagova, the Founder and President of the Sochi Film Festival. The picture shows the students with Luba and one of the awards.
Further details can be seen from the Press Release.
We are now actively seeking sponsorship or donations to make the gala awards event in February as impactful and interesting as we can. Please see the sponsorship flyer and contact the Twinning Officer if you would like to make a donation or get further information.
