Moscow International Film Festival

Moscow International Film Festival

Type: Regular shortfilm festival
Location: Moscow, Russia
Start Month: June


The Moscow International Film Festival is among the oldest in the world. For the first time it was held in 1935 and the Jury was headed by great Sergei Eisenshtein himself, but the chronology of the festival begins in 1959, when it became a regular event. It is significant that the rebirth of the Moscow International Film Festival occurred in the 60s of the past century, at the time of the Thaw, when cinema experienced the influx of a new generation of directors, whose spiritual experience was shaped under the influence of the great victory over fascism.
