Film critic Kirill Razlogov passed away

27 September 2021

Our friends, the relatives of our festival are leaving us. Peter van Bueren died last year, and now we are saddened to learn about the death of Kirill Razlogov. Like Peter, Kiril was with us from the first day of the festival, he was our advisor, our assistant. For many years he was the program director of the Moscow Film Festival, for more than thirty years he was the head of the Scientific Research Institute of Culture, he was the chairman of the Guild of Film Critics of the Union of Cinematographers of Russia. He was the author of hundreds of articles and 16 books, including one about Harutyun Khachatryan.

He has not been able to attend our festival only once in seventeen years. We will always miss him and remember our dear Kiril Razlogov with longing and gratitude.
