On November 19, the closing ceremony of the XVII international open festival of student films “PeterKiT” took place. Our festival has come to an end, but you should not get upset, because next year we will meet again at this bright creative venue of St. Petersburg!

In addition to the master classes, a scientific-practical conference, a theater evening, and a round table were held, moderated by the artist, art historian, professor, member of the international association of art critics Richard Comte. We hope that every participant of the festival has found something new, useful and interesting for these three rich creative days.

"The days of the XVII festival" PeterKiT "have flown by." This is a storm of emotions, a lot of impressions, I want all the participants to express their gratitude for the palette of genres that you have presented with your works. For the fact that you raised issues of the struggle between good and evil, the theme of love, for covering the civil human position in your works. And I congratulate all the participants, regardless of who became the winner! This is an incredible platform, a platform for starting where you can show all your talent, and, of course, I would like to wish you creative success, and in no case dwell on what has been achieved.
