The 11th Annual Russian Film Week returns to the New York City from October 28th through November 4th, 2011. Organized by Global Advertising Strategies in partnership with Studio Clotho, the event is officially endorsed by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and the City Administration of New York.
Throughout its 11-year history, the film week has become a much anticipated cultural highlight within the Russian-speaking community of New York and beyond. Now in its second decade, the week looks to capitalize on the strong following and stake its claim on the New York’s film festival scene. This year’s film selection, curated by the film industry veteran Katie Metcalfe of Future Shorts, will be screened exclusively at Manhattan’s legendary Village East Theater.
Throughout the week, cinema lovers will be offered a variety of thought-provoking film entertainment, including action blockbusters, compelling dramas, hilarious comedies and innovative art house projects. Screenings will feature Q&A sessions with the cast and the directors, who are coming to New York City specifically for the Russian Film Week. The event will also feature panels, master classes, conferences, networking events and speaking engagements aimed to strengthen the dialogue between Russian and American filmmakers and cinema enthusiasts.
