Stalingrad Directed by Fedor Bondarchuk Nominated for Oscar

Fedor Bondarchuk’s Stalingrad - the first Russian IMAX 3D film - has been nominated for the best foreign feature film Oscar Award.

      The decision has been announced by the Russian Oscar committee following its voting results.

      Stalingrad is the first Russian film in the IMAX 3D format. Its budget amounts to $30 million. According to the film director, September 28 will see the first run of the film in Volgograd (which was renamed into Stalingrad in the Soviet epoch), whereas the Moscow premiere is scheduled for October 2. The film will go on general release as soon as October 10. The film will also be screened abroad. In particular, it is planned to run in over 3000 movie theaters in China.

      Stalingrad was competing for the Oscar nomination with A Long and Happy Life by Boris Khlebnikov, Short Stories by Mikhail Segal, Kin-dza-dza by Georgy Danelia, Major by Yury Bykov, Rita's Last Fairy Tale by Renata Litvinova, and Legend No. 17 by Nikolay Lebedev. In turn, the RF Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky supported the choice of the Russian Oscar committee.

      It should be noted that in 2014 Fedor Bondarchuk plans to start shooting a film about Pavel Durov - the founder of the VKontakte social networking website – based on the same-name book Durov's Code by Nikolay Kononov.
