The Arctic International Film Festival has launched the Echo
– screenings of festival programs across eleven Arctic regions of Russia. The program showcases outstanding films from competition and non-competition selections from various editions of the festival. Golden Raven
film screenings started on February 14, 2022 in Chukotka Autonomous Area, Magadan Region, Sakha Republic (Yakutia), Krasnoyarsk Territory, Murmansk Region, Arkhangelsk Region, Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area, Nenets Autonomous Area, Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area, Komi Republic, and Republic of Karelia. The audience will be able not only to watch the featured or awarded films, but also to reflect on them during live discussions.
The films are screened free of charge in cinemas, libraries, cinema clubs, community and youth centers, schools, and universities in compliance with disease control and prevention guidelines.
An important industry-driven feature of the Echo
is its business program. Golden Raven
's online round tables will bring together filmmakers, public figures, government and business stakeholders from various Arctic regions and countries to discuss ways to develop creative industries in the Arctic, to preserve the cultural heritage of the northern peoples, and to reflect matters of history and ecology in the media.
