If you’re looking for something a little different in your movie choices this November, then check out the Russian Resurrection Film Festival’s new array of films.

From Friday, November 9 to Sunday, November 18, the festival will return for its 15th anniversary, showcasing 17 of the best contemporary Russian movies along with four outstanding classics. 

Explore friendship, fantasy, suspense and romance across nine days. Among the options will be new sports drama The Coach, starring Russian star Danila Kozlovsky; magical epic The Last Warrior, which brings traditional Slavic folklore to life; musically vivid romance Ice; and new comedy Night Shift. Actor Konstantin Khabenskiy will also be returning to the big screen with two films: Selfie and Sobibor, a film which tells the story of the only successful escape from a concentration camp in WWII, which Khabenskiy also directed. 

This year the festival will be hosted at ACMI and Classic Cinemas. Tickets range between $19 and $21.50 for adults, $17 and $17.50 for concession card holders, and $13.50 and $14 for children. Or you can buy a three-film pass for $42 to $51 for adults and $45 for concession card holders. Tickets to the festival’s Gala Opening on Friday, November 9, are also available for $65, and include food, drinks and authentic Russian entertainment.

Russian Resurrection is the largest celebration of Russian film and cinema outside of Russia itself, and takes place annually across Australia and New Zealand.
