XXX INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL MESSAGE TO MAN WILL BE HELD FROM NOVEMBER 3 TO 8, 2020
XXX International Film Festival Message to Man will take place in St. Petersburg on November 3–8.
This year, Message to Man will mainly be hosted by Dom Kino and Rodina, the cinemas where the Festival was born 30 years ago.
Three competition programmes (International Competition, National Competition and In Silico Experimental Competition) of the XXX International Film Festival Message to Man include 73 competing films, 32 Russian and 15 world premières.
There are also three key out-of-competition programmes:
- the programme that has become a traditional part of the Festival: Panorama.Doc (curators Alexey Medvedev and Natalia Pylaeva) that presents the most prominent documentary films of the season from recognized masters and innovators
- Superreal Cinema (curator Andrei Plakhov) that assembles the most anticipated feature films and the retrospective programme called Gender without Borders (curator Alexander Markov) is not just a tribute to Fellini, but also an attempt to take a fresh look at his masterpieces. It is a timeless and at the same time relevant context for talking about modern cinema.
