BRICS film festival kicks off in Moscow

The BRICS Film Festival, now in its eighth year, kicked off in Russia on Friday as part of the Moscow International Film Festival.

It is an annual event organized by the rotating presidency of the BRICS countries.

The Moscow program features eight films from Russia, India, China, Brazil, Iran, South Africa and Egypt.

“We learn to exchange, to get to know each other better and to better understand each other’s preciousness and values when we look at each other’s stories,” said Florence Masebe, a South African actress and member of the festival jury.

In a message posted on social media platform X, the Russian Foreign Ministry wrote on Thursday: “We believe that the future lies in the broadest dialogue between the world’s multipolar cultural communities. The festival is designed to be a part of this”.

The BRICS Film Festival runs until April 23, while the Moscow International Film Festival runs until April 26.
