The 11th Russian Resurrection Film Festival is screening around Australia throughout October and November. It screens in Melbourne at ACMI cinemas from November 13 through until November 23. There are a number of Australian premier screenings. The opening night film is the epic Vasilisa, set during the Napoleonic Wars. There are also a number of retrospective screenings to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Mosfilm Studios, including the Oscar winning Dersu Uzala and the 444 minute WWII epic Liberation.
