We are happy to announce that the 10th Russian Film Week is coming to New York. Artsy flicks and political mavericks will be at the core of the festival program this year that opens on Friday, December 3rd and runs through Thursday, December 9th.
2010 screening venues include theaters at the School of Visual Arts, the New York Institute of Technology (formerly Clearview's 62nd & Broadway Cinema) in Manhattan and Millennium Theatre in Brooklyn. The 10th Russian Film Week will introduce the audience to 13 feature films, representing the best of Russia’s cinematography from 2009 and 2010.
Some of the anticipated film screenings at the 10th Annual Film Week include “Burnt by the Sun 2”, a follow-up to the 1994 Oscar-winning anti-Stalinist drama by a veteran director, actor and producer Nikita Mikhalkov. “Crush,” a film made up of five short love narratives directed by the leaders of Russia’s ‘new wave’ of filmmakers Boris Khlebnikov, Ivan Vyrypaev, Petr Buslov, Alexey German Jr, and Kirill Serebrennikov, critically acclaimed “Wolfy” (“Volchok”) by Vasily Sigarev, the Grand Prix winner at the Open Russian Film Festival in Sochi, an international premiere of the most controversial Russian film of the decade “Russia – 88“ as well as the London Film Festival Award Winner “How I Ended This Summer”.
Roman Karimov’s romantic comedy “Inadequate People” (“Neadekvatnie ludi”) will pleasantly surprise American movie goers. The winner of the People’s Choice Award and Grand Prix Award at the Window to Europe Film Festival, the film was recognized by the Guild of Film Critics as the best directorial debut and received the best actor and the best supporting actor duo awards.
The 10th Annual Russian Film Week will offer a unique opportunity for a meet-and-greet with the actors, directors and screenwriters of the participating films. A renowned actor Yuriy Stoyanov will present “Man by the Window” where he stars in the leading role. Alexey Serebryakov, the star of “Zolotoe Sechenie,” will discuss his experience of filming in Cambodia. Garik Sukachev, a veteran musician with a cult-like following among his fans, will present his recent directorial work,“The House of Sun” and may even sing for his audience.
