7-17 November, Empire, Leicester Square
Academia Rossica is proud to announce details of its 7th London Russian Film Festival, hosted for the first time in partnership with the Empire Cinema, Leicester Square. Once again, the London Russian Film Festival will bring together the very best in contemporary Russian cinema, with crime thrillers, domestic dramas and animation, all featuring alongside an excellent documentary programme.
With many of these films having already received numerous awards at other international film festivals, this year’s festival will offer British audiences the chance to see some of the best in international cinema for the very first time.
Alongside these film screenings, the Film Festival will also offer audiences the opportunity to participate in masterclasses and Q&As with leading actors and directors, as the Festival’s seeks to foster intercultural dialogue between British and Russian artists and audiences.
Opening this year’s film festival will be Taisia Igumentseva’s debut feature film, Bite the Dust, an apocalyptic black comedy from the 2012 recipient of the Cinéfondation First Prize. An exploration of man’s apocalyptic obsession and the power of inhibition, this film follows the life of a tiny village living in the end times.
