All films will be shown in Russian with English subtitles. All the films in the program have been made since 2013 and many of them have received awards at other film festivals.

There are no competitions at the Russian Film Festival but there is an Audience Award. After each screening there will be a Q&A with the creators of the film.

This year’s program has many references to classical and modern literature. The Festival opens with the North American premiere of the film Two Women (2014) directed by Vera Glagoleva, based on the play by Ivan Turgenev, “A Month in the Countryside.” The renowned British actor Ralph Fiennes plays one of the main parts in the film.

The film Mirrors (2013) directed by Marina Migunova is dedicated to the famous Russian poet Marina Tsvetaeva.

The Brothers Ch (2014) directed by Michail Ugarov shows a day in the life of the great Russian writer Anton Chekhov and his brothers.

A special place in the program is occupied by a screen adaptation of the story White Yagel (2014) by Anna Nerkagi. This film, made by the director Vladimir Tumaev, tells us about the lives of peoples living in the Arctic regions, which is very unusual and full of mysteries. This film won the Audience Award at the 36th Moscow International Film Festival in 2014.

The film The Grandfather of My Dreams (2014) directed by Aleksandr Strizhenov belongs to the genre of grotesque family comedy and raises the eternal question about how much we depend on the material well-being which suddenly comes out of nowhere.

There Will Be No Winter (2014) is a film made in the genre of fantasy by director Ilya Demichev. It boasts an all-star cast: Ksenia Rappoport, Ingeborga Dapkunaite, Aleksandr Samoylenko and Sergey Koltakov.

The drama about a girl from an orphanage who grew up to become a model will close the Festival. Nine Days and One Morning (2014) was directed by Vera Storozheva, the famous film and television personality who was awarded at TEFI and at many other Russian and international festivals. Before the screening of this film the viewers are invited to an honorary session with the renowned Moldavian-Russian actress Svetlana Toma.

The festival will have a children’s day when little viewers will see the full-length animated fairy tale Ivan Tsarevitch and Grey Wolf-2 (2013) directed by Vladimir Toropchin and a full-length feature film The Mystery of Four Princesses (2014) by Oleg Shtrom.

The documentary program has two films in different genres. The film A Diary of a Drug Addict (2013) by Svetlana Stasenko is a social drama, and the film Voices. An Aria for the Fog (2014) by Elizaveta Shmakova is a portrait of a legendary opera diva. The documentary program will be concluded by a master-class on documentaries led by Svetlana Stasenko.

The short film program lists different films made by young directors. The film Unintentionally (2014) was made by Zhora Kryzhovnikov. His recent comedy Bitter! (2013) became one of the most successful films of the year. The short film Inspection (2014) made by Gala Suhanova tells a story of a dysfunctional family with children. The film Tonya is Crying on the Bridge of Lovers (2014) by Anton Kolomeets is about the generation of thirty-something year old and the passage of time; and in the film Shredder (2014) by Michael Dovzhenko we witness a highly unusual (but based on a true story) situation when the audience is asked to vote on killing a work of art.

Animated shorts from the Shar (The Ball) studio-school will be shown before full-length films.

Among the Russian delegation of cinematographers there are famous directors and actors such as Vera Glagoleva, Svetlana Toma, Aleksandr Strizhenov, Vera Storozheva, Marina Migunova and others; 14 people in total.

About the Russian Film Festival in Canada
The Russian Film Festival in Canada was founded by the TRFF (The Toronto Russian Film Festival) in 2009 which strives to popularize Russian cinema and increase the cooperation between the Canadian and Russian film industries. During the five years of its existence the Festival has acquired many admirers and viewers. Overall, about two hundred films of different genres and artistic directions have been shown during its annual screenings. The Festival has become a popular and anticipated event both in the Russian community as well as among English-speaking film-goers and film industry professionals.

In 2011 the TRFF started partnering up with Russian organizations. The Festival’s status then changed. Support from the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation now made it possible to organize the Festival at a very high level, to invite large delegations from Russia and to present the audience with the very latest films.

2014 Jane’s Walk annual global festival runs May 2nd, 3rd and 4th!

This year the Jane’s Walk turns eight, and there are more then 120 of great walks throughout Toronto. The walks get people to explore their cities and connect with neighbours. As always, Jane’s Walk is FREE and locally led walking tours run rain or shine.
No reservations are needed – JUST SHOW UP! 

Below are links to two Junction walking tours this weekend.

Junction of the Canadian Dream: Hangin' Out With History

Saturday, May 3, 2014 | 2:30 PM

Walk Leader: Neil Ross


Meeting Place: Runnymede Library
The exact meeting point is in the park immediately north of (behind) the Runnymede Library along Glendonwynne Road, Kennedy-Margdon Parkette. The closest transit stop is Runnymede subway station.

Ending Place: Annette Street Library
Participants can catch either the Junction 40 bus to Dundas West or the Keele bus to Keele station, both from Dundas and Keele.

About This Walk
Travel the Junction and learn its place in the heart of Canada.

Experience the coming together of the railways on the meeting point of First Nations trails. Explorers La Salle and Brûlé may well have passed through here, and there is some evidence La Salle actually stopped for a latte . . .

Neil Ross tells you his favourite Canadian stories and his favourite Junction stories in a walk from the Runnymede to Annette Street Libraries. Perfect bookends: Runnymede was designed to reflect a Canadian identity.  Annette Street was envisioned as the cultural centre of an independent city. "After all, we're all immigrants on this bus."
Duration: Approximately 1 hour, 30 minutes

Neil Ross is the co-author of One Hundred Years at the Junction Shul and of the screenplay Worthy of Such a Country: D'Arcy McGee. As president of the West Toronto Junction Historical Society, his historical walking tours have made NOW Magazine's Editors' Big Three Can't Miss Events -- along with Caribana and professional wrestling. Neil writes the graphic novel series Justice in the Junction: the Life and Times of Josiah Royce.
