Nizami Cinema Center in Baku hosted the awarding ceremony of the first Booktrailer Festival in Azerbaijan organized with the assistance of Azerbaijan's Culture and Tourism Ministry.

Booktrailers are short videos that promote a book or an author, providing a good illustration of the book content.

Founder and Director of the Festival Ruslan Sabirli, addressing the opening ceremony, said that the Organizing Committee of the Festival has received 25 works, including from Italy, France and Bulgaria.

"We are very pleased by the attention given to our first project by foreigners. However, since the project isn't international, only 21 booktrailers were allowed to compete in the Festival. The jury evaluated the work of each participant separately. After that, the Organizing Committee summarized experts’ opinions and winners have been identified. All films submitted to the Festival are available on www.booktrailer.az. Here, you can once again confirm the talent of our youth," said Sabirli.
