Inauguration of the revival of the Tashkent Film Festival
A landmark decision to revive the legendary Tashkent International Film Festival was taken at the IV International Congress held in December 2020. Firdavs Abdukhalikov, Director General of the Cinematography Agency of Uzbekistan, announced this from the stage.
The news was heard to the sound of the legendary anthem of the Festival of past years.
The Tashkent International Film Festival was held from 1968 to 1997. Every year, the Festival was attended by cult directors, actors and other cinematographers.
Thus, the revival of the legend bearing the new name "The Pearl of the Silk Road" promises not only a transformation in time, but also cardinal changes in the program of the Film Festival
