Rostelecom showcases award-winning films during Tuyvezh Festival

Rostelecom will host a video library of award-winning and nominated films on its Interactive Television service.

The library will include films from the third International Festival of Visual Arts of the Finno-Ugric Peoples.

Alexander Hutsieva, the director of Rostelecom's Komi branch, said the original films carry the national colors and offer a special view on the nature of man.

The films come from the Tuyvezh Festival, which is held in the Republic of Komi, Syktyvkar, in September.

"The very idea of organizing a Tuyvezh festival consisted in the fact that people have seen an enormous wealth of the Finno-Ugric languages and cultures," Evgeny Filippov, the head of film promotion at KomiKinovideoprokat, said. "And if these works look across Russia, it's just great. On such a wide release authors could only dream of.

Interactive TV is a unique product from Rostelecom that enables users to efficiently and easily manage television viewing.
