user
On Friday, 29 October, 7pm the 4th Russian Film Festival opens at the Apollo West End in London, with the UK premiere of cult director Garry Bardin's stop-motion animation, The Ugly Duckling. This year the opening film is an unconventional choice - a sparky and affecting animation with Orwellian overtones which has met with great critical acclaim in Russia.

About Academia Rossica

Academia Rossica
ACADEMIA ROSSICA

ACADEMIA ROSSICA is a Russo-British foundation, founded in London in 2000, which supports and promotes cultural links between Russia and the West.

The Russian Film Festival in London is organised by ACADEMIA ROSSICA and was launched in 2007. The festival allows a British audience to see the work of leading Russian filmmakers and presents a variety of styles, genres and themes which reflect the problems and hopes of today’s Russia. The main programme of the festival is made up of the premiere of the ten best critically acclaimed films of the year.

The ROSSICA cinema club is a platform for showing Russian films between the festivals. The screenings of rare archive films, exclusive programmes and discussions between filmmakers and film experts have become important cultural events not only for film buffs but also for cinema specialists.

Russian Literature and Language Week has been promoted in Britain by ACADEMIA ROSSICA since 2008 with the aim of extending Anglo-Russian literary and intellectual ties. As part of this year’s Week, there will be a bookstand representing material from the BOOKS FROM RUSSIA publishing house at the London Book Fair. In addition, there will be numerous discussions between British and Russian intellectuals and publishers, as well as book presentations and talks by leading Russian writers, such as Dmitrii Bykov, Aleksandr Ilichevskii, Lev Rubinshteyn, Olga Slavnikova and Aleksandr Archangelskiy. ACADEMIA ROSSICA’s partners in this project are The Federal Agency of the Press and Mass Communication, The Yeltsin Foundation and The Russkiy Mir Foundation.

The International ROSSICA Prize was founded by ACADEMIA ROSSICA and the Yeltsin Foundation in 2004. The ROSSICA Prize is unique in that it is the only prize in the world for the translation of Russian literature into English. The Council for the prize is made up of many prominent literary figures: the Director of the British Centre for literary translation Amanda Hopkinson, the President of the English Pen-Club («ПЕН-клуб») Alistair Niven, the literature editor for the Independent Boyd Tonkin, publisher Christopher Maclehose and the Director of the literature programme of the British Council Susanna Nicklin. The ROSSICA Prize will be presented in London, on the 24th May, the Day of Cyril and Methodius. The prize amounts to £5,000 and is divided between the publisher and the translator. 

ROSSICA Journal - a journal in English, published by ACADEMIA ROSSICA. The journal deals with a wide range of issues - from Russian history and cultural heritage of the past century to recent news on contemporary art and culture. ACADEMIA ROSSICA aims to develop its projects in collaboration with a large number of Russian and foreign partners, in this way widening the gateway for the efffective integration of Russian art, literature, theatre and cinema in contemporary international culture. More information about the projects of ACADEMIA ROSSICA can be found on the site www.academia-rossica.org 

ACADEMIA ROSSICA is organising its 3rd Russian Film Festival which will be shown at the Apollo West End from 30th October to 8th November 2009. The program includes features by directors such as Sergei Solovyov, Karen Shakhnazarov and Kira Muratova, a number of documentaries, some contemporary animations and a selection of classic Soviet musicals.
