The forum is usually held on 20th - 25th of September in Bishkek, and in other regions of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan afterwards.
The IFF “Bir Duino” is constantly developing. Whilst the first three forums were confined only with one competitional program, there were two competitions: the National and International ones held in 2010. We point with content, that Grand Prix winner in National Competition- the film “The State and the Government” is chosen for the “Zvezdi Shakenna” IFF which will be held on the 11-15th of May 2011 in Almaty.
