International documentary film festival
The Flahertiana festival named after this American filmmaker rests upon principles first used by Robert Flaherty in his film “Nanook of the North”. These are films where the hero lives on the screen a part of his life directed by the author according to the laws of dramatic art. All decisions of the festival selection commission, which consists of film critics Viktoria Belopolskaya and Marina Drozdova and filmmakers Boris Karadzhev and Pavel Petchenkin, are made based on these principles.
Besides main competition program, there is “Russian Flahertiana” program which includes best Russian films of Flahertiana aesthetics. The winner of the program is determined based on audience voting.
Address: 17 Pionerskaya st., Perm
