Other films
- The Enthusiast's Demarche, Sergey Kokovkin (USA), 52 min, Script by : Sergey Kokovkin (USA)
The film includes interviews with: Elena Dovlatova, Dovlatov's widow; Ksana Mechik, Dovlatov's sister; Lev Losev, writer; Andrey Ariev, writer/critic; Vagrich Bachkhanyan, artist/writer; Vitaly Komar, artist; Lyudmila Stern, writer; Alexander Genis, writer; and many others. Dovlatov's fate was full of mysteries and changes. He played with his life the same way he played with his characters - openly and recklessly. He passed away at the age of 48, just missing his fantastic popularity back at home in Russia. Candid, occasionally almost confessional stories told in the film help develop a multi-faceted, uniquely lively personality of a wonderful man and a great writer. The film aims to create the effect that Sergey Dovlatov is still here with us. The screening is sponsored by The New Review Corporation (USA).

- The Artists of Odessa, Dmitry Khavin (USA), 47 min, CEC ArtsLink (USA)
A nostalgic look from New York director Dmitry Khavin at the homeland of his ancestors. The viewer sees Odessa as it was seen by Babel, Zhabotinsky, Eisenstein, Kandinksy, and others. Modern artists, actors, and poets - both those who have left their childhood home and those who have stayed - tell stories of their favorite city with typical Odessa humor.

- Kamchatka. The Salmon Country, Daniel Levin, 30 min, Studio: Pepela Production (USA)
A work by an American documentary filmmaker on the subject of ecological and economical problems of Russian Kamchatka. Journalists, ecologists, forest rangers - those who bravely oppose poaching and corruption in these Pacific parts of modern Russia - tell the stories of their struggles and hopes. The film presents the beautiful but crumbling world of Kamchatka nature.
