Tours of Your Choice to Moscow 

The program of Center Festival 2018
includes four blocks: "Society", "Culture", "Film Archive" and the selection of short films for the first national competition.
The Society block brings together films on acute social topics: cyberspace and its legal norms, the era of post-truth and the transforming paradigm of success.
The Culture block includes films about the heroes of various areas of art, epochs and political spaces. What they have in common is disobedience to the established aesthetic canons and resistance to public stereotypes.
Film Archive addresses topical issues of the modern world through the prism of the cinema history. It is designed to attract attention and open access to the creativity of significant but little-known film directors in Russia and rare archival masterpieces.
This year's innovation is a national Russian contest among documentary filmmakers and video artists.

The festival will be opened with the film “After the Summer” by recognized Russian film director Kirill Serebrennikov. The film dwells on the history and mythology of Russian rock music. This is a film about the freedom and independence aspirations of the youth of the Stagnation period in Russian history.
How about the legendary "American dream"? What has happened to it? Why even the most prosperous countries cannot get rid of bullying at schools and harassment in social networks? Viewers will learn about it from documentaries by Chris Marker (France), Lauren Greenfield (the USA), Robert Green (the USA) and other famous directors.
Three films featured at the festival – “Us, Margela”, “Kusama. Infinite Worlds” and “Poor People. Kabakov”- will tell about the life and creativity of outstanding artists from Belgium, Japan and Russia, whose works have become a cult and largely determined modern views on art.
