The 42nd MIFF. Apprehensions, Hopes, Prospects

 

The 42nd MIFF which was postponed due to the pandemic, is approaching fast. It will be held on the 1-8 of October 2020.

The Opening and Closing films of the 42nd MIFF

 

"Silver Skates" by Michel Lockshin is the Opening film of the 42nd Moscow International Film Festival

The main competition

 

The main competition at the Moscow Film Festival always has surprises in store, which subsequently define the trajectory of national and international cinema

MAIN COMPETITION

 

Line-up of the Main competition program of the 42nd Moscow international film festival became known

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

Spectrum

 

The aim of the SPECTRUM program is to expand the geopolitical, aesthetic, formal boundaries of cinematic panorama of the current season

Masters

 

The traditional MIFF program “Masters” will offer Russian premiers of films by many famous screen masters whose works always arouse a lot of interest

8 ½ Films

 

We are often asked what we are guided by when selecting movies for our program which celebrates its 21st anniversary in 2020

Euphoria of Obsession

 

This year’s Euphoria is built around the contrast between different generations of directors. The classics Alejandro Jodorowsky, Alejandro Amenábar, Pedro Costa set the high artistic level which younger directors might have trouble getting up to.

Young and Beautiful

 

This new Festival program resulted from the impossibility to ignore those who are so eager to be heard

Time of Women

 

Films by women directors are spreading throughout the world while international festivals sign the 50/50 agreements expanding the share of such movies in their competitions and the number of women in selections committees

Missing Pictures

 

Who could have imagined that the title of the program might refer to the future? We are still apprehensive that it might become the pessimistic variation “Pictures that were and will be missing”.

Robert Enrico. Independent

 

Robert Enrico is one of almost a hundred directors whose first steps in big cinema in the early 1960s coincided with the heyday of the French New Wave

The war: Witnesses' Accounts

 

We have put a lot of effort into finding ways of commemorating the 75th anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War. The solution came unexpectedly

Third Age

 

Each year we offer a program called “Third Age” (the designation for people over 50) but it is increasingly becoming a program about the fourth age, about those over 75.

Russian Trace

 

This program always attracts a lot of attention as it is focused on the interpenetration of cultures involving Russian themes and emotions which are readily accessible to us.
