MOSCOW. The VIII International Film Festival "Russian Abroad" will open on November 7 at the Moscow House of Russian Abroad. The program of the film festival included 27 documentary and feature films from more than 100 countries.

As noted in a press release of the upcoming event, the film forum "Russian Abroad" is a unique and so far the only film festival in the Russian Federation, the focus of which has always been and will be the main theme of the Russian world. “The Russian abroad is not only emigration, it is the world of any person who thinks he is Russian and lives outside his ethnic homeland. The Russian world is the world of Russian culture, language and memory of ancestors. One way or another, this is narrated by each of the festival paintings, ”the organizing committee notes.
Over the years of the existence of the film festival, its laureates and guests at different times were Nikolai Karachentsov, Nikita Mikhalkov, Yuri Solomin, Aida Vedishcheva, Yuri Nazarov, Andris Liepa and many others.

Yul Brinner (Yuli Borisovich Briner) was born on the territory of the USSR, in Vladivostok, but by the will of fate he lived all his life abroad. We are known for his leading roles in such legendary films as “The King and Me” (1956 release, and already in 1957 received the Academy Award for playing the leading male role in this film), “The Magnificent Seven” (1960), "Solomon and the Queen of Sheba" (1959).
