XX International Documentary Film Festival Flahertiana

Flahertiana is one of the largest documentary film events in Russia.
The 20th anniversary festival will be held in a new format: screenings and discussions of films in competition will take place online.
 
The competition program is the heart of Flahertiana. There are 47 amazing documentary film stories that have been waiting for a whole year to meet their audience.
 
You will go on a cruise with a real Scottish baron in King of the Cruise, escape from Iran with a young family to meet love in Love Child, learn Christmas secrets that are kept in the Chinese town in Merry Christmas, Yiwu. These and other stories from all over the world – in the International Competition of “Flahertiana-2020”.
 
The National Competition brings together small stories and epic documentaries from the life of Russians. Ural stand-up comedians (Stand-up is Pain), a philosophic reindeer herder from Yakutia (Northern Wind Can Be Warm), young idealistic teachers (Hey! Teachers!) and witnesses of the Second World War (Wilfred and Alexandra) – each film hero of "Russian Flahertiana" has a story to tell.
 
Diversity and versatility are the main distinguishing features of the Student Competition. Traditionally, уoung directors are not afraid of difficult topics: with talent and honesty, they film emigration (Lenchik), ageing (Kids), relationships within the family (The First Word), love and death (One).
 
All films of the festival correspond to the aesthetics of Robert Flaherty, the filmmaker whose name was given to Flahertiana. The main method of Flahertiana’s films is a long-term observation, "habitual camera". The main character lives on the screen a part of his life, and it is captured the way it is. Films of Flahertiana line up in a gallery of portraits of contemporaries and thus draw a line under the outgoing year of world documentary cinema.
 
Don’t miss the announcement of the full festival program, subscribe to the pages of the festival on social networks: Facebook and VKontakte.

THE FILMS ARE AVAILABLE FOR WATCHING ONLY IN THE TERRITORY OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION
