Russian Resurrection Film Festival 2013

By April 11, 2013 Events

Proudly celebrating a decade, 2013 is the tenth year for the Russian Resurrection Film Festival. The festival, the largest festival of Russian Cinema outside of Russia today, returns to screens Australia-wide this July and August, sharing great cinematic moments in Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and for the first time Byron Bay. Attracting lovers of cinema, Russian culture, the Russian community and filmmakers, the Festival pays homage to its authentic Russian roots through the magic of movies and festive Opening Night parties that are sure to keep you dancing all night as you enjoy traditional Russian hospitality.

Each year, high profile Russian directors and actors travel to Australia as guests of the Festival, promoting cultural exchange and strengthening the relationship between Russia and Australia. Marking the X anniversary, special festival guests will include Valery Todorovsky (director of Hipsters, Country of the Deaf and The Lover), with more guest directors and actors to be confirmed. In addition to the renowned Opening Night Parties that you don’t want to end, Russian Folk Ensemble Nights in select cities are also planned for 2013, along with a cinema-distributor event and Q&A’s with visiting guests. Since its inception in 2003, 65,000 people have embraced the vibrant celebration of Ruski culture and attended the Festival.

Mark your diaries, get your fur coats out of the cupboard and get ready to immerse yourself in the delights of Russia once again!
