PRESIDENT OF THE JURY OF THE 41ST MOSCOW FILM FESTIVAL

 

President of the jury of the 41st Moscow film festival (Main Competition) – famous Korean director Kim Kim Ki-duk

THE FORTY FIRST

 

The present MIFF is taking place at the time of deep changes in the film industry and the festival movement.

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.

THE THIRD AGE

 

People now live longer. Humanity is getting older and it entails new social and psychological problems. In different countries famous artists and film stars are getting older too

THE WORLD OF ARTS

 

The program will open with “The White Crow” by Ralf Fiennes which deals with the Soviet period in the life and work of Rudolf Nureev, a famous ballet dancer who lately became the central figure of several documentaries and feature films

ODESSA. CITY OF CINEMA

 

The idea to make this program occurred to me following the almost simultaneous deaths of Kira Muratova and Stanislav Govorukhin

RUSSIAN TRACE

 

Russian contribution to the world cinematic process is not limited to our national (Russian, Soviet and once again Russian) cinema

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...

EIGHT AND A HALF FILMS

 

This year the program “Eight and a Half” celebrates its 20th anniversary.

SPECTRUM

 

The idea behind the Spectrum program is to broaden – geopolitically, aesthetically, formally – the boundaries of the cinematic “spectrum” which emerges in the course of the current film season. The program abounds in striking, at times provocative films which are bound to arouse discussions.

TIME OF WOMEN

 

What is women’s cinema? Film scholars have come to the conclusion that it is hard to give a precise definition of this phenomenon. It is neither a genre, nor a movement, it does not have national boundaries or clear-cut aesthetic peculiarities.

EPISODE ONE

 

The MIFF is attempting to blaze its own trail in the ocean of TV and on-line series which are becoming increasingly popular lately

MICHEL DEVILLE. MASTER’S DOSSIER

 

A long time ago when I was a student at VGIK, I remember reading somewhere that on the set of Michel Deville’s movies actors felt as if they were having a rest...

AGE OF “AVENGERS”

 

Just slightly over ten years MCU has managed to evolve from the comic books subculture to a global cultural phenomenon which calls for an adequate apprehension

MISSING PICTURES

 

Every year the title of the program acquires new meaning. Originally this section was intended for works which for various reasons were overlooked by Russian festivals and distribution. Today the stress is on the idea that none of these films are likely to make it into national distribution.

“LEADEN TIMES” OF ITALIAN CINEMA

 

The Italian cinema of the 60s and 70s should not be reduced to the visual fireworks of Fellini, the subtle psychodramas by Antonioni, Pasolini’s mythological chronicles or Visconti’s neo-classical frescoes...

VGIK IS 100. MAN WITH A CAMERA

 

VGIK is one hundred years old and it seems truly fantastic.

XXth CENTURY OF HUNGARIAN CINEMA

 

The Hungarian National Archive channels a lot of effort into restoring old films, bringing them back to new life, allowing the new generation of viewers to see the masterpieces. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Hungarian film classic Zolt?n F?bri all his movies were restored in 2017. Now the leading world film festivals include many of them into their programs.

EUPHORIA OF ILLUSIONS

 

This year the traditional MIFF program centers on movies about characters possessed by strong emotions and fixed ideas.

FREE THOUGHT

 

In the case of our Festival we can often predict the winners. This year is no exception. The film which won the main Spanish film award Goya was seen by our viewers a year earlier. It was “The Silence of Others” by Robert Bahar and Almudena Carracedo.

PATHS OF TURKISH CINEMA

 

As part of the cultural program of the Year of Turkish Culture and Tourism in Russia the 41st MIFF in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Turkey offers a retrospective of contemporary Turkish movies.
