Hi, friends! The film of Yulia Vishnevets "Hey! Teachers" is going to have its world premiere at Krakow film festival, that starts on May, 31! It will be the online premiere - because the festival has moved… More online this year. This feels a bit strange but what is not strange these days. And of course this would not happen without the support of B2B Doc - Baltic to Black Sea Documentary Network and its tutors! We will never have enough words to thank you all, guys! Also thanks to Current Time TV - it would be impossible to complete "Hey! Teachers!" if not for their financial support. Anyone whos in Poland can watch "Hey! Teaches!" at screenings:

Krakow Film Festival has announced the winners. Among them is one of the films, suppprted by B2B Boc: SPECIAL MENTION for Hey Teachers / Катя и Вася идут в школу directed by Yulia Vishnevets, produced by … MoreEugenia Vengerova! Motivation: For the richness of a multi-faceted story set in a seemingly ordinary backdrop, and for the insightful, bitterly ironical take on how the Russian public education system can sometimes break down the idealism of certain teachers whose altruistic goal is to educate and improve the lives of their students. Congratulations to the team with such a wonderful result!!!

Joining in B2B DOC group is an experience, I must admit. I am from the Fiction world, working for Cinema with a grand narrative in India ! Though,my perception towards telling the narrative is being changed for few years,pulling me close to the Creative Documentary more and more. Meanwhile, joining in B2B is really helping me to grow the insight . The group is really informative exchanging the thoughts and projects about different genres of documentaries and discourse. My heartiest thanks to the admins.
