The choice of Generation #

 

It seems that it was only recently, though in reality it was seven festivals ago, that we had an idea to make young directors who had burst into our cinema, contribute to the image of the festival. The rather vague definition “millennium generation” seemed becoming to all of them.

OCTOBER IN «OCTOBER»

 

Millions of Soviet people were sure that they had seen the key events of the October revolution of 1917 with their own eyes. On the screen.

CONTRIBUTION TO FILM ART

 

OPENING/CLOSING

 

The opening and closing films at international festivals in general (and the Moscow festival in particular) are always a lottery.

COMPETITION

 

The MIFF Competition has always been a stumbling block for the festival organizers, critics and viewers alike.

I BELIEVE!

 

There is no need to go into detail while describing the importance of the Konstantin Stanislavsky Award “I Believe” at the Moscow International Film Festival. It is sufficient to give the names of the recipients.

FREE THOUGHT

 

The documentary program “Free Thought” has been part of the Festival since 2006. Since that time it has presented to Russian viewers more than 150 Russian premieres of the best foreign documentaries, winners of prominent world film festivals and film awards, box-office hits representing all trends and genres in contemporary documentary filmmaking.

SPECTRUM

 

When “Spectrum” appeared for the first time among Moscow Film Festival’s programs, one of the renowned film critics joked nervously it must be a ghost produced by James Bond's subconscious.

EUPHORIA OF THE FRINGES

 

The title of the program will probably surprise some people and even offend others. When we invited movies from Romania, Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria and Finland we unwittingly placed Eastern Europe in opposition to its more serene and prosperous Western neighbor.

8 1/2 FILMS

 

“Eight And a Half Films” is one of the oldest and most popular programs of the Moscow Film Festival. For the first time it appeared in 1999.

MISSING PICTURES

 

Every year the title of the program “Missing Pictures” acquires new meaning. Originally it was intended as a section for exceptional films which for some reason were overlooked by Russian festivals and distributors.

THE TIME OF WOMEN

 

Nowadays women have become much more active in cinema which for a hundred years has been male-dominated.

KONSTANTIN LOPUSHANSKY’S RUSSIAN SYMPHONIES

 

The 39th Moscow Film Festival presents a retrospective of Konstantin Lopushansky’s films on the occasion of his 70th anniversary.
