Library World Events

Biblio night 2016 will be on April 22

Biblio night is an annual festival of reading that takes place in April all over Russia. That night all libraries, book stores, literature museums and art spaces prolong their working hours and expand work formats.

For the first time the action was initiated in 2012 by Library association and Association of managers of culture. In two years it was already supported by 2 000 areas all over the country. We like cinema because it embodies movement. And even nothing happens on the screen, even if shots do not change each other, and static pictures are quite like photos, cinema is always movement, and movement of time primarily. Andrey Tarkovsky called cinema “imprinted time” and told that “incomparable freedom with which artists can treat material provided by reality, and organize the material successively” joins cinema and literature. Cinema and literature have a lot in common. They are relatives. Literature is much older, for cinema she is an ancient and honorable ancestor. Cinema inherited a lot of interesting things from literature, for example, montage. Moreover a writing - a script – is in basis of each film. Many films are adapted novels, stories and tales. Frequently a reverse process takes place – from “moving pictures” to a word – directors, producers, camera men, actors, critics, historians write books about cinema, i.e. create their own literature. “Read cinema!” is the subject of the coming “Biblio Night 2016”. We, librarians, on April 22 will read “imprinted time” together with cineastes and their spectators indeed, to feel the very literature roots and understand this art better. Camera! Action! Read!
