  Russian Film Week 2018 [read more]
  Oh, those Russians
  The Russian Film Week is a relatively new festival which has grown tremendously in the last two years, bringing over the crème de la crème of Russian filmmaking to the UK and more than 100 filmmakers and film stars for Q&As and masterclasses. This year's line-up at Regent Street Cinema is even more spectacular, with a special focus on the young filmmakers' feature-length debuts, dubbed by some as the Russian New Wave.

The festival runs from 26 November to 2 December and includes the following titles screening at Regent Street Cinema:

A documentary about the shooting of the film Hostages and the tragedy in Georgia in November 1983, when a group of youngsters from elite Georgian families tried to hijack an aircraft in order to escape from the USSR. The film involves live witnesses and participants of those events, as well as the creators of the film Hostages, who are trying to comprehend and get through the national tragedy of their people 35 years after what had happened.
Followed by a Q&A with director Elena Slatina
