Vitaly Mansky
(Ukraine)

VITALY MANSKY was born in 1963 in Lvov. In the year 1982 he entered the All-Russian State Institute of Cinematography (VGIK) (S.E. Medynskiy’s workroom). His first work in the world of cinematography appeared in 1989, and since that time he has shot more than 30 films. His works were presented at more than 400 international film festivals, among which we can site forums in Cannes, San-Sebastian, Rotterdam, Berlin, Amsterdam, Moscow, Oberhausen, San-Francisco, Locarno, Munich, Toronto, Montreal, Turin, Krakow, Rio de Janeiro, Yamagata, Lisbon and many others. He was awarded with more than 50 awards and prizes in Russia and abroad. His films were shown on the leading channels in practically all European countries, as well as in Japan, Australia, China, Canada and other countries. Since 1996 Mansky has been working on a project that aims at archivation of amateur private video files that were shot in the times of the former USSR from 1930s until 1990s. Thus we have the unique archives of one and only films – evidences of the Soviet society’s private life.
