The film "Dylda" directed by Kantemir Balagov will participate in the 72nd Cannes Film Festival

       The film is nominated for the Queer Palm prize, which is awarded to the best LGBT-relevant films.

      The film Dylda was produced by Alexander Rodnyansky, who mostly collaborates with
film director Andrey Zvyagintsev, without the support of public funds.
