Today, the film festival for teenagers and young adults under the name"...Teeners" is coming to an end in the capital of South Ossetia. The idea of holding the festival for adolescents and young people "...Teeners" in Tskhinval occurred to organizers of the annual Film Festival in 2009, while filming a documentary film about the August war in South Ossetia. This has been reported by the head of the charitable nonprofit foundation named after Valery Priemykhov Olga Kurbatskaya-one of the organizers of the festival, - at the press conference in Tskhinval.

"It all started with that the fund named after Valery Priemykhov I headed two years ago, was shooting a documentary film ''Tskhinval, could it be otherwise,'' devoted to the anniversary of the tragic events in South Ossetia in August 2008. When we came here to shoot the film, looking at the dark children` faces and eyes full of pain, who had not yet come to themselves from the endured horrors of the war, our hearts were breaking of compassion "- said Kurbatskaya. President Eduard Kokoity has awarded honorary degrees to the Festival guests and participants. The Chairman of the Jury and People's Artist of Russia Larisa Luzhina has emphasized the importance of the Film Forum in Tskhinval.
"When I was flying here, I thought about how many trials and sufferings the South Ossetian people had endured on their way to independence, and my heart was full of pain - said Luzhina. - During a war the most affected are children. I suffered it myself during the World War II living in the besieged Leningrad and I have the firsthand knowledge of the horrors of war." The festival was being held for five days. The opening ceremony was attended by the President of South Ossetia, Eduard Kokoity, People's Artist of Russia Larisa Luzhina, a writer and producer Eduard Topol, People's Artist of Russia Yuri Nazarov, the popular Russian actor of cinema and theater Kyurdzidis Euclid, Helena Skorokhodova, Oksana Stashenko, Timothy Fedorov, Lyudmila Maltseva, Irina Grineva.
