Russian Resurrection is the largest and most distinguished annual Russian film festival outside of Russia and is now in its 11th year. The festival will launch its 2014 season around the country on October 30, as well as in New Zealand for the first time ever. Russian Resurrection celebrates the finest of Russia’s film industry, history and culture. This year the festival is celebrating the 90th anniversary of Russia’s first film studio, Mosfilm, and the incredible program boasts 6 retrospective films and 14 new films.
Some of the films that will screen during Russian Resurrection are Test, winner of 2014’s Kinotavr Film Festival’s Best Film; Stalingrad, a compelling film on the epic battle between Russian and German forces during WWII; and Akira Kurosawa’s Dersu Uzala, which won the 1976 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
Russian Resurrection Film Festival’s Managing Director Nicholas Maksymow said the following of the festival:
“I am proud and honoured to show the world what the Russian film industry has to offer. With over 65,000 people having attended the event since we started in 2003, it seems Australians really do appreciate what the Russian film industry has to offer. I can’t wait for them to see what we have in store for them this year.”
Russian Resurrection is an amazing opportunity for fans of film to experience some incredible work that has been and is being produced in Russia. Don’t miss this chance to soak in as much of it as you can.
