Victor Yushchenko has opened the 36th Kyiv International Film Festival “Molodist,” which is being held under his patronage.

In his speech, the President said the prominent feature of the festival was its ability to reflect the most topical trends of the movie industry, the president press office informs.

“Every year, the festival becomes more European,” he said.

President Yushchenko thanked its organizers, particularly Molodist Director Andriy Khalpakhchi, for their commitment and efforts.

He presented a Scythian Deer statuette to Iryna Skobtseva and her son, Fedir Bondarchuk, the two members of the Bondarchuk cinematographic dynasty, for their contribution to art. Then he spoke with members of the jury.

This year’s opening ceremony film is Paris, je t'aime (Paris, I love you).
