Get a glimpse of Russia through the eyes of film makers
If all you know about Russia is its wannabe action hero President, vodka--the country's drink of choice--and the nation's brutally cold winters; here is your chance to get a better perspective of the country. Film lovers will also be excited to know that Russian Resurrection, the Russian Film Festival that celebrates the best of the country's film culture is set to begin in Perth in November.

This year the festival will celebrate the 90th anniversary of Mosfilm--Russia's inaugural film studio--with an exhibition of six retrospective films and 14 brand new films.

Amongst the films to be screened is Test, winner of 2014's Kinotavr Film Festival's Best Film; Stalingrad, a compelling film on the epic battle between Russian and German forces during WWII; and Dersu Uzala winner of the 1976 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. There is even a chance to get the kids involved with animated movie; Space Dogs 2 Moon Adventures.

Viewers are in for a treat with the rich culture of a country many know little about on display as part of this festival. Russian Resurrection was first established in 2003 to support the growing Russian Film Industry, and to showcase the talent of Russian filmmakers and actors on a global scale.
