Christmas Light, the first Moscow International Festival, was held as part of the Moscow Seasons cycle of festivals and lighting of Moscow in the fall-winter period. The festival was held as a large-scale decoration of pedestrian areas and roadways connecting the fairgrounds of the Journey into Christmas festival.
Idea: Christmas light of the world capitals and cities visits Moscow.
The task of the participating countries was to decorate a city area using their artistic and decorative style. The streets of Moscow were illuminated with lights of large-scale arched structures, light banners, 2017 digits, tunnels and other unique interactive art objects.
As part of the festival, interactive lighting events, multimedia and installation show programs were held. MIF Christmas Light not only introduced Moscow residents and guests to the lighting traditions and art of various countries, but also created a new format for the international festival – a single vibrant festival space that was unparalleled in Russia at that time.
