TOMSK, Jan 17 – RIA Tomsk. The short film "The Woman in the Room", shot by Tomsk residents based on Stephen King's story, will be presented at Russian and international film festivals; Tomsk residents will be able to see this picture in the cinema at the end of February, the producer of the film Roman Dvaladze told RIA Tomsk.

Earlier it was reported that 16-year-old Tomsk resident Diana Kostyrina signed a contract with Stephen King as a director to film his story "The Woman in the Room" under the Dollar Baby program, within the framework of which the writer shares his copyrights with schoolchildren and aspiring filmmakers around the world for a year. A private screening of the film took place on January 15.

"We are planning to send "The Woman in the Room" to various festivals, not only Russian, but also foreign. Tomsk natives will be able to see the film at the end of February – at the beginning of March in the cinema, we have not yet decided on the stage, but we will show the picture exactly on the big screen", – Dvaladze said, specifying that the picture will be sent to Stephen King.

The interlocutor of the agency added that the director's cut of the film was 30 minutes.

It was also reported that the shooting of "The Woman in the Room" took place in a closed hotel, in the "Professor's Apartment" museum, in Lagerny Garden and in a country house. The story of the American writer is adapted to Russian realities. For example, the main character's name is not Joni, but Alexey. The ending of the film does not coincide with the ending of the story – it is more positive.

The short film will be shown in 2021 in Krasnodar at the annual international festival Dollar Baby Russia.
