The Russian Film Festival opens today, the first time in the UK, running until December 10, 2021, on BFI Player. The festival comprises ten films, celebrating contemporary Russian cinema.

Of the ten films, four are by both established and exceptional emerging Russian women. The selection includes the multi-award-winning director Oksana Karas as well as Anastasiya Palchikova and her film Masha - which serves as the jewel of the festival. Ten contemporary Russian films across various genres have been selected specifically for British audiences, bringing contemporary Russian cinema to the UK and will be available online.

The Russian Film Festival is a project organized by ROSKINO with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation.
