6th Russian Film Festival in UK

The Russian Film Festival is returning to London on the 2nd November for its 6th year! The festival will present the UK premieres of the most illustrious Russian films of the past year – works by established film directors as well the new generation of Russian filmmakers.

From poetic parables to poignant documentaries and perceptive drama, this selection of films reflects the diversity and paradoxes of contemporary Russia. It is a window to the real Russia of today – films such as Kokoko, Rita’s Last Tale, Chapiteau-Show and others will surprise British audiences with the originality of modern Russia and its cinematography.

All films will be shown in Russian with English subtitles. Films will be presented by their world-renowned directors, actors, and producers, who will be joining us for Q&As, discussions, and masterclasses. In addition to the feature programme selected by Andrei Plakhov, documentaries chosen by Vitaly Mansky, and two animation screenings, there will be a retrospective of the great Andrei Konchalovsky.

The festival is organised by Academia Rossica and the Russian Cinema Fund in collaboration with the Apollo Cinema Piccadilly and the Institute of Contemporary Art. For the first time, the festival will encompass venues outside of London in partnership with the Universities of Cambridge and Edinburgh.

Another highlight of the festival will be the second Russian-British Co-Production and Distribution Forum, organized in collaboration with the British Film Institute and the Russian Cinema Fund.
