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.

The extensive program of this year's festival will begin to operate immediately on the following five platforms: the Red Square, the Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure, the Central House of the Artist, and the Central Exhibition Hall “Manezh”. 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.

More details on these elaborate proceedings can be found in the Festival “Event Diary”.

The festival will show bright works of well-known Russian artists, giving way to new names among young experts in the field of light design, as well as acquainting its audiences with the Worldwide Festivals of Light. 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.
