Cosmonauts supported the Tsiolkovsky International Space Film Festival

The V Tsiolkovsky International Space Film Festival will be held in Kaluga from April 12th to April 16th. It will be dedicated to Yuri Gagarin’s 90th birthday and all Russian and Soviet cosmonauts, Heroes of the USSR and Russia.

Last week, on January 16, Russian cosmonauts visited the Voenfilm studio and the Vadim Zadorozhny Museum of Military Equipment. Cosmonauts Oleg Artemyev, Anton Shkaplerov, Sergey Prokopyev and Dmitry Petelin, as well as Irina Rogova, head of the press service at the Gagarin Research and Test Cosmonaut Training Center, and Vladlen Nevzorov, a long- standing friend and partner of the Tsiolkovsky International Film Festival, head of the Russian Time Watch Manufacture, came to the meeting with Igor Ugolnikov and Vadim Zadorozhny.

After a sightseeing tour of the museum's unique collection of rare military equipment, the guests discussed possible areas of cooperation with the president of the festival Igor Ugolnikov, namely, expanding the participation of cosmonauts in the business program of the festival and organizing meetings with the audience. By the way, some of the "space" guests of the International Space Film Festival will be included in the jury; the full jury panel is to be announced in March.

It turns out that this year there will be even more memorable moments at Tsiolkovsky!
