32nd Moscow International Film Festival Award Winners

With what seems like a complete and eclectic program the 2010 Moscow fest absolutely has something for everyone with films from all over the world, including a Chabrol retrospective, Sergio Leone homage, Asian Extreme program and a documentary series by none other than Alexander Sokurov just to mention a few. The fest runs from June 17 to 26.

The Opening Film is the 2010 Claude Lelouche's Une Femme et des Hommes (What Love May Bring) and the Closing Film is one that I have been following since Cannes (no, it wasn't in the fest) Les Aventures Extraordinaires d'Adele Blanc-Sec by Luc Besson, 2010. These two films are obviously must be seen for me.

These are the films in the Main Competition.

A la Deriva (Drifting), Ventura Pons, Spain, 2010
Besa, Srdjan Karanović, Serbia, Slovenia, France, Hungary and Croatia, 2010
Boxhagener Platz, Matti Geschonneck, Germany, 2010
