The 9th RusDocFilmFest-3W in New York

The 9th annual RusDocFilmfest-3W will take place in Manhattan and Brooklyn on Oct. 7-9, 2016. The festival reflects the contemporary life of the multi-ethnic Russian-speaking world - the open-minded world of independent inspiration and free thought.

The Festival program in 2016 includes 25 documentaries from Armenia, Germany, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, and the USA; most are laureates of international film-festivals in 2014/2015/2016. There will be presentations of several film-directors in a Q&A format. All screenings will be American premieres. All films will have English subtitles.

The 3W-DocFestival presents documentaries with wide social, historical, and cultural focuses. The festival presents special screenings which range from contemporary Russian literature – titled “In the Beginning was the World”, to historical themes – “Remembering the Holocaust in the XXI Century”; screenings about social issues and multi-cultural dialogue in the context of Russian culture – “Free World”, as well as a special program “At the Crossroads”, which features films by newly graduated film-directors. The festival includes a Competition Program and a Non-Competition Program. The awards given at the festival include the Grand Prix, the Special Jury Prize, and “Faces of Russia” Award, as well as several diplomas and prizes from The New Review, Inc. – the organizer of the festival, and from the festival’s sponsors.

The 3W-DocFestival is a non-commercial project maintained with private donations and the support of several New-York-based organizations.

The general sponsor of the 9th RusDocFilmFest-3W: The Dynasty Foundation, a non-profit charitable organization.
