Nikita Kesselev, a young British national with Russian roots, who was born and raised in London, has enrolled to study at one of the most famous film schools in the world - the All-Russian State Institute of Cinematography named after S.A. Gerasimov (VGIK).
Nikita developed a strong passion for cinema several years ago. He started from the very bottom – he brought coffee to film crews, installed equipment, and carried out instructions from directors. Then he started doing his own shooting and scripting.
All that time, Nikita was hoping to study at VGIK. This dream started becoming a reality when Nikita learned about Rossotrudnichestvo’s program, which allows foreigners and Russian compatriots residing abroad to get free education in Russia’s best universities. Now Nikita Kesselev is a student of the feature film directing course. Sergey Soloviev and Rashid Nugmanov became his mentors.
Nikita told about the history of admission in his video.
