Overview

The Circle of Light Moscow international festival is an annual event at which lighting designers and specialists in audiovisual art from various countries reinvent the architectural scene of Moscow by using video mapping. The buildings that symbolize Russia - among them are: the Bolshoi Theatre, the Moscow Manege, the Moscow State University, VDNKh, and others - transform into canvases for large colorful video projections. The entrance to all festival venues is free. The Art Vision video mapping contest runs under the aegis of the Circle of Light festival. It is divided into three nominations: - Classic Architectural Mapping - Modern Video Mapping - VJing. There is an educational program that takes place during the festival. It includes lectures and workshops with the world class lighting designers. Educational activities are open for visitors, but the pre-registration is needed.

Beautiful and modern spectacle I was totally delighted! I'm glad that I got out! It's a spectacle worth seeing! Pictures and scenes are projected onto buildings in such bright colors, which even on TV are not shown! Very beautiful!

Awesome festival The festival is just awesome! Thank you for the opportunity to attend such an event. The only negative - it was cool, a little frozen. I advise you to dress warmer, who will go! So that nothing distracts you from the art!

Stylish and technological festival Interesting installations and a sharp breakthrough in the technical sense. How is it possible to show a picture in such a huge format and at the same time preserving the quality?! It's the real future! Beauty, style and technology - that's...More

The event is a point of interest for all Muscovites and the capital guests! You won’t find such a beautiful show like this anywhere! One minus is traffic jams and blocked roads, and of course, a lot of people, queues and crowdedness. If you want...More

Amazing show. The light show seemed to me very beautiful, although my friends were not the first time there and they said that the last year program was even steeper! I think if you go for the first time, then you will be exactly inspired...More

This show is worth to stand in line and look through the heads in front of you. It is understandable that all Moscow came to admire such a show! It's good that there are many platforms around the city, and different subjects, so there is...More

The idea is cool, but the performance, as always in Russia, is lame. There was countless number of people. The organization needs to be urgently corrected, so as not to spoil the overall impression of the event, because what was shown on the buildings of...More

Tverskaya
Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first
glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long
street populated with well-known shops and brands. But
it’s more than shopping that makes this place
interesting. Take a few steps into the streets running
parallel to the main artery to discover the charm just
behind the mighty Stalinist style architecture. Comfy
