Andriy Khalpakhchi: LGBT program "Sunny Bunny" is important and we will not give it
Kiev International Film Festival "Youth" to this year's showcase competition program "Sunny Bunny" in spite of the events of the past year, said Andrew Khalpakhchi
Opening of the "Sunny Bunny" in cinema "Kyiv" has passed peacefully and without provocation. The program was opened by Mr. Khalpakhchi. He stressed that the program is relevant and important part of the Film Festival "Youth" and it needs support in these difficult times.
"The program was organized in the late nineteenth century as a child" Teddy Bears ". Then we thought that we are courageous and willing to create a program in a new, independent Ukraine. I remember the story of previous years, when one journalist asked the then President of Ukraine - Viktor Yushchenko and President of "Youth" as he is the President of Ukraine, may allow the display of LGBT cinema at international festivals. He answered this rhetorical question: Do you nvvazhayete that gays and lesbians are not citizens of Ukraine ", - said Andrey Khalpakhchi before showing of the film.
