The educational programme has always been its major focus: public talks with invited experts from Russia and the UK speaking about the international film industry.
This year, the educational programme will be traditionally held at the Moscow Film School. It will include public talks with the festival guests: director of Gwen William McGregor, and Schemers’ producer Khaled Spiewak and lead actor Conor Berry. The Moscow Film School will also host four film screenings with follow-up discussions. The festival will present a selection of short films nominated for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), as well as full-length documentaries about music. The screenings and subsequent discussions will be moderated by Russian film critics and teachers from the Moscow Film School.
Discussions will be held in Russian or in English with simultaneous translation. The films will be screened in English with Russian subtitles.
The educational programme events are free, prior registration is required.
