Art House Film Festival Opens in Moscow

On October 18, the fifth Festival of Independent Cinema "2morrow" started its work in the Russian capital. Its visitors will see films of Martin Scorsese, Roger Corman, Kim Ki-duk, Jafar Panahi and others.

      This year the festival's program focuses on low-budget movies which managed to convey a strong message without any frills. Its main theme is "Confession. Illustrations. Diaries." The festival will open with a film by Lynne Ramsay from Scotland and starring Tilda Swinton, "We Need to Talk About Kevin", dedicated to fictional school carnage. Closing the film marathon will be "Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel" by Alex Stapleton from the USA. The main competition program will feature 8.5 films - eight features and one short movie. 

      Famous director Kim Ki-duk will present his film "Arirang", the winner of the Special Mention award at Cannes, which tells about personal writer's block. Iranian dissident director Jafar Panahi, which was sentenced to six years in prison and a 20-year ban from his profession in cinema by Iranian authorities, presents his "This Is Not a Film" work, telling about one day of his life, when he was waiting of another judicial decision.

      Other international festivals participants’ films on the menu will include "Crulic" – a documentary animation by Romanian Anca Damian and "The Sun-Beaten Path by Sonthar Gyal", both screened in Locarno; Venice’s Horizons program participant "Birmingham Ornament", made by Russian directors Andrey Silvestrov and Yury Leiderman; Norwegian Andre Ovredal’s "Troll Hunter"; and "Calvet", by French filmmaker Dominic Allan.

        Within the framework of Andrei Smirnov's retrospective, the festival will show his first film for many years "One There Was One Woman". Modern part of the program will be presented by "Bullet's Collector" by Alexander Vartanov and "Our Day Will Come" by Romen Gavras.

      There also will be special program, dedicated to documentary films about music, including history of the "Pearl Jam" group, film "Kurt Cobain: The History about Son" and some other interesting works.

      The winner of the festival this year will be determined solely by the visitors, who will be offered the chance to vote after the screenings. The art house film week will run in Moscow’s Rolan, Pioneer, Five Stars on Novokuznetskaya and 35 MM cinemas through October 23. 

      Further information and shedule is on the festival's official site.
