With stormy applause: the film, shot in Crimea was presented at the closing ceremony of the film festival "Eurasian Bridge".


The dramatic film directed by the screenwriter Alexander Veledinsky "In Cape Town Port .." was shown at the final day of the Third International Yalta Festival. Vladimir Steklov, national artist of Russia presented the film. His performance caused a standing applause from the audience.
The films storyline takes the audience to the summer of 1945. Sailor, Pakhan and Salazhonok met in the Far East. This encounter ended with gunfire, and each of the participants is completely sure that he killed the other two. Only half a century later, this fateful meeting of 1945 will lead to events in different parts of the Earth...
Film festival organizers, Sergey Aksyonov, Head of the Republic of Crimea, Viktor Merezhko, President of the Eurasian Bridge and national Artist of Russia, Sergey Chuvyrin, General Director of the Moscow Film Company “Gelvars Cinema”, chose this drama for the closing ceremony. After all, the geography where “In Cape Town Port..” was filmed is very admirable. The first location was St. Petersburg, then the Far East and then, of course, Cape Town. However, the key scenes were shot in Crimea. For the festival, organized in Crimea, this is important.
The main filming took place on the streets of Sevastopol: on the embankment and in the Theater of the Black Sea Fleet. These shots became the trademark of the film and of the third International Film Festival. After all, in 2014, at the presentation of the film "Sunstroke" Nikita Mikhalkov proposed to establish an annual film festival, which would be held in Crimea to revive and popularize the Crimean cinema and give motivation for strengthening international cultural relations. So it happened. Already in September 2015, the festival was opened in Yalta under the patronage of the Head of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov.
The leading filmmakers of Russian Federation, Nikita Mikhalkov, Kirill Razlogov, Leonid Vereshchagin, Vyacheslav Telnov, Oleg Ivanov, Suren Shahumyan, famous film actors and many others were participants at the presentation program. At the opening ceremony Nikita Mikhalkov, the inspirer and co-founder of the festival, presented presidents of the festival to the guests and residents of Crimea - Viktor Merezhko , National Artist of Russia and Arin Novoselskaya , the Minister of Culture of the Republic of Crimea, Honored Worker of Culture of the Russian Federation.
Years later, on the day of the III International Film Festival “Eurasian Bridge” closing ceremony, Arina Novoselskaya once again noted that the nature of the peninsula allows making films of any genre. And the viewers of the “In Cape Town Port..” film have noticed it even more than before.
“Crimea is the American prairies, the Mediterranean shores and the Russian fields. It is antiquity, medieval and modern times. Come to Crimea, make your cinema here and know: you will always have our support, especially now, together with the creation of a special film committee, ”said the Minister of Culture.
