The conference will be held in the form of a press breakfast. The doors of the New Space will be open from 11:15.

It is expected that other partners of the festival will take part in the press conference.

Ten years is a significant milestone in the biography of the festival, over the years its all-Russian, international fame and creative reputation has developed. A large team is working on the festival, many federal and foreign partners are involved in what we do. This year we decided to announce the programme in Moscow in order to draw special attention of the cultural and media community to the anniversary forum. In addition, we are interested in the tourism component of the festival, and we hope that this press conference will attract more guests from other cities of Russia and foreign countries to the Platonov Arts Festival.

The Tenth Platonov Arts Festival will be held in Voronezh from June 5 to 21.

Dear journalists, film crews, bloggers, friends and spectators of the festival, we will be glad to see you at the press conference!
