Can you evaluate the level of the films and the festival generally?

The selection of films did a great job. I believe the organizers did a high-level management at the festival. I watched very good Iranian and German films.

To what level are you familiar with Iranian cinema?

Well, my acquaintance with Iranian cinema started with one film in a festival and then I became curious to discover the Iranian cinema and learn more about.

I want to ask you about technique of the films. In your opinion which one is more important, the story or the technique?

When you have a good story it helps the technique so the technique is based on the story and we fix everything based on that. I myself prefer the story but sometimes may be we have to  pay attention more to the technique.

If you want to generalize it to the Russian cinema, which one weighs out the other?

The story! Because in our country government support the animation cinema that is why they just choose good stories and valuable topics.

Do you believe when you participate in an international festival like ICFF, you are contributing to the animation in Russia?

Interacting with other directors and knowing what is going on in the world of animation helps me and the others to have new ideas. And of course get progressed.

Do you think film about children is more important or for children?

We have to find new and good idea and it should be for all. However, there should not be the way that children cannot see it.
