The meeting of the Organizing Committee for the preparation and holding of the Spirit of Fire International Debut Film Festival took place. ⠀
This year's event will be held from February 22 to 28 and will include the programs of two festivals at once: last year's 19 th and 20 th festivals. The postponement of the Spirit of Fire to 2022 was necessary since the festival should be held in halls with spectators and not in a series of online connections. The Spirit of Fire dates coincide with the holiday weekend, allowing the Committee to offer more programs for residents of not only Khanty Mansiysk but also of the whole Autonomous Okrug and other regions. ⠀

It is planned to invite Yulia Peresild and Klim Shipenko, artists who have recently been filming in space, as special guests and hosts of the opening ceremony. ⠀

It is also expected to invite Andrey Moguchy, a theater and cinema director, artistic director of the Tovstonogov Bolshoi Drama Theater, as an honorary guest and a jury member. ⠀

The cultural program of the 19 th Film Festival and special projects have been remained. The exhibitions based on the Arctic and Antarctic Russian State
Museum will be held as well. Traditionally, there will be a family concert dedicated to the Chitalkin literary contest, supported by the Hometowns program of Gazprom Neft, the film festival's General Partner. ⠀

The children's creative workshop "Route to Cinema" will continue to work with participants of animation and theater studios of the Autonomous Okrug. During the film festival, the "Your Cinema" program is supposed to be held in a competitive format, thus opening up new opportunities for the program's further development.
