- This is my first time at this film festival," said theater and film actress Elizaveta Shukova. - Last year we presented the movie "Uzbek Girl", but we couldn’t manage to visit. This year we are insanely happy that we are here. You have such amazingly beautiful, bright, national costumes are incredibly beautiful. We hope that our arrival will further strengthen cultural ties between Uzbekistan and Belarus, and we will make more joint films and please the audience. I am insanely happy that I was received so well, they remember my role in this movie. I would like to note that it was a pleasure to work with my Uzbek colleagues. I expect to see a lot of interesting projects from the film festival, as well as to watch our film on the big screen, to get acquainted with the culture and strengthen our cooperation.
