Russian Film Week
January 23, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - January 27, 2021 @ 8:00 pm
Russian Film Week in New York (RFWNY) was co-founded and successfully re-launched by the 501(c) (3) non-profit arts organization, Cherry Orchard Festival Foundation (USA) and Rock Studio Films (Russia) in 2018. This partnership aims to develop a multi-state, annual week-long showcase, in an effort to present independent, commercial, documentary and arthouse Russian films with subtitles to mainstream US audiences.
Over 18 events were presented during the first Russian Film Week in December of 2018, including free and paid screenings, movie premieres, screenings and events for kids, free community events, panels, Q&A discussions with artists and directors, press events, and opening/closing night private/semi-private receptions. In June of 2019, Russian Film Week in New York started a new initiative to promote Russian movies: we presented free screenings of two Russian films (with subtitles) at New York’s Wolfe’s Pond Park in Staten Island, as part of the NY City Council’s Cultural Initiative, supported by New York City Councilman Joseph C. Borelli (district 51).
