Family Day is traditionally held in the framework of the International Film Festival "Spirit of Fire".

Today CTC "Ugra-Classic" has become a real children's amusement centre. A rich program was prepared for young guests: animators, soap show "Kiselnye Berega" ("Milk and Honey"), nitrogen show "Sladkaya Kukhnya" ("Sweet Kitchen"), creative workshops from the Center for the development of children's and youth creativity. The premiere of the children's fairy tale "Behind the blue door" was held. Also, there were screenings of films for children and their parents.

The main event of the day was the long-awaited presentation of the project "Small Cinema" - "Chitalkin in Khanty-Mansiysk", where young residents of the Okrug demonstrated their talents in reciting poetry and prose. Children from the program "Voice": Arina Danilova, Kirill Skripnik and Yaroslav Degtyarev came to support the beginning artists. The concert was hosted by a musician, actor, poet, author and performing musician Vasily Urievsky.

"The Fund "small CINEMA" and the company "Gazpromneft-Khantos" with the support of the social investment fund "Hometowns" jointly hold a concert "CHITALKIN in Khanty-Mansiysk" for the third year in a row. Last year, with the support of the Presidential Grant Fund and the participation of Gazprom Neft, the "small CINEMA" Fund held competitions "CHITALKIN" in Orenburg, Muravlenko, Noyabrsk, Tomsk and Khanty-Mansiysk, where they recorded more than 200 literary works, which were added to the unique video library "Encyclopedia of fairy tales of Hometowns" on the channel "CHITALKIN (small CINEMA)". More than a thousand children participated in the qualifying rounds of the competition. And now the winners from the five cities came to the concert. They have come a long way to finally come on this legendary stage," said Vasily Urievsky welcoming the guests of the concert.

12 young talented elocutionists from Tomsk, Orenburg, Muravlenko, Noyabrsk and Khanty-Mansiysk, the winners of the "CHITALKIN" competition read their favourite poems and stories in CTC "Ugra-Classic". Lev Ushakov from Khanty-Mansiysk was the first to come on the stage with the work of Lev Kuzmin "Marvelous Wonder". Then the youngest participant of the concert Christina Savkina came with the work of Pyotr Sinyavsky "Thrange Thtory". Young talents went on stage as the hero of the chosen work: someone buzzed like a bee, the other was mischievous and dishevelled, and someone was intensely concentrated.

All the participants of the concert passed the qualifying rounds in the libraries of their cities. This means that they are all big fans of books and reading by heart. The talent of the participants stunned the audience to the ground and even goosebumps broke out across the body. Their mastery is undeniably emphasized on the big stage of CTC "Ugra-Classic". A special gift was the performance of Yaroslava Degtyareva with the song "Cuckoo", which captured the hearts of all the members of the jury of the program "Voice".

"When I was invited to take part in the literary concert "CHITALKIN", I had no idea that the atmosphere is so creative and pleasant. And all the winners deserve the most vivid emotions and applause. Each of them is talented in his own way", Arina Danilova, the participant of the project "Voice. Children" shared her impressions.

At the end of the concert, Vasily Urievsky expressed his gratitude to the audience and thanked the program "Hometowns" of the company "Gazprom Neft" for such a necessary and worthwhile investment in childhood, talent and the future of the country: "We thank the Governor of Ugra Natalya Komarova, head of corporate communications department of Gazpromneft-Khantos company Yevgeny Rodionov, President of the "Spirit of Fire" Film Festival Sergey Solovyov for the permanent platform for reading children, the "small CINEMA" Fund for organizing the concert and the "CHITALKIN" competition and the film crew of district TV and radio company "Ugra" and personally the General Director Valery Raevsky. And all who came to support children in their creative work. And thanks all the parents!".
