From the 28th September till the 2nd of October 2012, a bright and colourful event takes place in the magnificent capital of Russia – The Second Moscow International Festival "The Circle of Light". Organized by the Department of Mass Media and Advertisement; the festival of light is a unique large-scale event within the limits of 2D and 3D fields wherein light-designers and professionals use architectural spaces of the city as facades for multimedia and light installations.

The general theme for the festival this year is the "Energy of Life ". Each program, each presentation at the "Circle of light " will be filled by an unanticipated creative atmosphere, directed toward a united association of people coming together from all over the world.

All the platforms will be easily accessible, working in looped runs from 19:00 till 23:00 daily. You will be able to approach and experience the art of light in all its glory, including the Festival Opening Ceremony at the Red Square on the 28th of September.

This is all possible thanks to the unique technical equipment of the festival, operating strictly by a combined collection of projection equipment made of thousands of components.
