Russian cinema beyond borders
kinoglaz.fr (France) - 01 January 2017 - 31 December 2025
2023
Like any form of art, cinema is a territory of freedom, an ideological issue and an object of censorship.
Not since Russia’s mass exodus (starting from 1918) and the "Philosophers’ boat" (1922), which expatriated its intelligentsia’s finest members, has Russian culture in general and cinema in particular seen such a large departure of intellectuals and creators as that caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, on 24 February 2022. Time will tell whether this exile is permanent or temporary. In the meantime, it has resulted in the development of a Russian cinema abroad. This page aims to report on this issue.

The names mentioned in the green banners are those among the Russian filmmakers who have in the past, are in the present or plan in the future to participate in the creation of the “Russian cinema abroad”. These personalities are among the creators of the shown below films , some of which were produced in Russia before 2022.


Dans le domaine du cinéma : « L’exode qu’ont entraîné la déclaration de guerre puis la mobilisation a touché des centaines de personnes »
Joel Chapron, spécialiste du cinéma russe, correspondant du festival de Cannes pour les pays de l’ex-URSS
