The 1978 Tashkent International Film Festival made a turning point in history
The film festival contributed to the development of trade and many other sectors
In 1978, a new era in the history of the Tashkent International Film Festival began. Countries that did not even dream of showing their work to the world were included in the official program of the film festival for the first time. Film screenings from Burundi, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Zambia, Cameroon, Mali, Nigeria, Senegal, Togo, Tunisia and a number of other countries marked a turning point in the history of world cinema.
After these film festivals, relations between the countries strengthened, trade and many other fields developed.
This year's festival is expected to take part representatives from more than 30 countries, including Italy, France, Poland, India, the USA and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
