Venice presents the eleventh edition of the Russian Film FestivalJune 28th, 2017
Following the Italian Film festival organized in Moscow this year due to the magisterial work of Russian Ministry of culture and the Italian Embassy, the Embassy of Russia collaborated for the realization of the History Pages Russian Film Festival in Italy.
This event opens his doors on June 20, 2017 in a seaside resort town Jesolo in the province of Venice, Italy. During this four-day festival, Russian contemporary films are presented to the Italian and international public.
The film festival schedule includes five Russian movies: “About Love” by Anna Melikyan; “I am the Teacher” by Sergey Mokritsky; “Green Carriage” by Oleg Asadulin; “My Own Honour Bright” by Aleksander Karpilovsky; and “Collector” by Aleksey Krasovsky. In order to be accessible and understandable for all of the population, all the movies are viewed in Russian with Italian subtitles.
Moreover, esteemed and very popular Russian filmmakers guaranteed their presence at the event. For this reason, the organizers included debates following every screening, where the people can discuss together and address their questions directly to those whom worked at those films.
History Pages festival comes to Italy for the 11th time. Previous editions were conducted in other locations such as Castellaro, Laguzelle, Monzambano, and Castiglione delle Stiviere. During the last 10 years, locals attended films of world-famous Russian directors, such as Karen Shakhnazarov, Pavel Chukhrai, Fedor Bondarchuk, and others.
