The All-Russian FestivalShukshin Days” dedicated to the renowned Russian writer, actor and film director, Vasily Shukshin, attracts more and more tourists every year. The large-scale event kicks off on July 18 to present a program that is especially extensive in honor of the jubilee of the Altai Territory.
This year the organizers of the Shukshin Days had to create three posters: a general, a literary and a cinematographic one, since the festival has expanded its boundaries, with a number of new events introduced.

The festival will start in the Shukshin Street near his monument in Barnaul at 1 pm. The opening ceremony of the 19th All-Russian Shukshin Film Festival will begin in the V.M. Shukshin Regional Drama Theater at 6:30 pm.

On July 18 and 19, creative meetings with writers will be traditionally held in Barnaul (Shishkovka), Biysk (in the Shukshin Central State Library), Belokurikha and Srostki. For the first time, the events of the Literary Crossroads will be organized in Pavlovsk (inter-settlement library), Bystry Istok (at the Zolotukhin Memorial Complex) and Novoaltaysk (at the city library).
