“What a blessing to see again the people dear to my heart, who are associated with the best years of service to the great art of cinema,” the former deputy director of the Tatarkino state institution Naila Kamalova began the words of congratulations, “I am very grateful to fate for having crossed the threshold of“ movie distribution ”for the first time back in 1970, and forever in the wonderful and wonderful world of cinema, it was involved in the great brotherhood of filmmakers. At that time, the distribution was led by a man – a legend, a former front-line soldier – Akhat Belyav, a man who was endlessly in love with cinema. He created and rallied around himself a team of like-minded people. And each in his place, regardless of the position he held, worked hard and with great love for his work. Therefore, Tatkinoprokat has always been one of the best in the country. It is good to see that under the new conditions, the cinema of Tatarstan is confidently moving forward, films of various formats are being shot and successfully have been shown not only in the republic, but also far beyond its borders. And the International Festival of Turkic Cinema was added to the International Muslim Film Festival. ”
