From May 25 to June 2, 2019, Zheleznovodsk hosted Hero and Time International Film Festival. The contest included Russian and foreign documentaries and fiction films. Tutors of Pyatigorsk State University administered simultaneous interpretation of the films, as well as consequent interpretation of films discussions with directors and producers who came there from all over the world. PSU volunteers assisted the participants and guests of the festival (Profi-Soci-Lingua Volunteer Center).
The work of our interpreters and volunteers received positive feedback from spectators and organizers of the festival, together with the letters of gratitude for A.P. Gorbunov, PSU Rector, and interpreters:
Arevik Ashotovna Gevorgyan (English, group coordinator, Chair of European Languages at IIR);
