Echo of Flahertiana
The «Echo of Flahertiana» is an annual event which shows the best films of the documentary film festival «Flahertiana». In 2014, the program will be held for the ninth time. The main purpose of the «Echo of Flahertiana» is to give the opportunity to see films of the festival to fans of documentary cinema from other cities in Russia and the CIS, as well as the citizens of Perm, who missed the festival screenings.
«Echo of Flahertiana» is an experiment of an independent documentary film distribution on the territory of Russia and other CIS countries, which compensates for the lack of quality non-fiction pictures in commercial movie theaters. You can’t see the films included in the program on television or in the Internet. Therefore, we take over the function of «Flahertiana» festival films distributors.
First we make an agreement with the owners of the films, we make subtitles if necessary, and then release a catalogue. The expenses on the screening of the program force us to charge the audience at least with a little fee. This money will not compensate fully our expenses of preparing and carrying out the program, but we believe that this is the first step towards the creation of an independent distribution system of non-fiction cinema in Russia.
Last year the screenings were held in Omsk, Irkutsk, Kazan, Krasnoyarsk, Rostov, Saratov, Minsk, Mogilev and the cities of Perm Krai.
