We bring the light of this star to our Belarus. Through his songs, thanks to his musical work, thanks to his cinematic creativity we know this wonderful person!

In today's turbulent world, today, when we see what is happening in different parts of the world, namely peace, understanding, tolerance, art is what will probably save the world. I wish your festival great success! Especially in the next year's 25th anniversary.
