«It was not easy to select, there were very interesting and original scripts. There were scripts for full-length film as well, but we focused on minimalism during the selection. Of course, you can let your imagination run free and write in the script about spaceships, it is very interesting and exciting, but you should always remember that short films are low-budget production,» – said Sharipa Urazbaeva.

She also noted several projects that she interested her. These scripts will not go unnoticed, she said.

«I would recommend to future participants not to try to imitate someone, to find their own handwriting, their own style and, of course, not to forget their roots, to make national film» the director added.
