City as a modern man’s way of life requires a great deal of attentiveness. Especially concerning anything related to cultural leisure. Ever expanding flow of events (from exhibition openings and night parties – to awareness of fashion tendencies and updates of restaurant menus), different in their quality, meaning and orientation, make the city life immense and diverse. In such circumstances points, combining information, gathering all cultural trends and giving recommendations and comments to most prominent ones, become requisite.
Afisha magazine is one of the major points of such nature. Specializing in highlighting city events in the sphere of leisure culture, it “assembles” fragments of city life into a whole. Afisha credo is “The magazine for all seeking to be aware of contemporary cinema, music, literature, arts and fashion. The magazine writing about things which will become popular tomorrow, being first to spot everything new and interesting.” We have asked the Afisha editors and reviewers to tell about tendencies of city leisure, “new” city dwellers and reply to questions of the audience.
