The IFF "Message to Man", which will be held from September 15 to 22, 2018 in St. Petersburg in the 28th time, announces the list of the competition programs.
On the 31st May passed the final deadline for submitting films to the 28th IFF Message to Man.
Message to Man is Russia’s most prominent showcase for documentary cinema. At the 2018 Berlinale, we met with their charming, affable, and endlessly passionate Director Alexei Medvedev to see how his festival is going and to catch up prior to Message to Man’s 2018 edition. We found out about his highlights from previous years – including a visit from the one and only Werner Herzog – as well as the logistics of running a film festival in Russia and why more sometimes is less with regards to your film’s festival track.
