The online publisher Hi-Media and the cultural association "Diversités" are launching a new online film festival, to be held December 1 through 31, 2010.
In partnership with Unifrance, with the goal of celebrating this year's France-Russia Cultural Exchange Program in their own style, the online publisher Hi-Media and the cultural association "Diversités" are launching a new online film festival, to be held in December, 2010.
Since the Internet has become one of the most effective distribution channels, this first-time online festival will be hosted on the web in order to present a maximum number of French and Russian films to audiences.
Mixmoviefestival.com strives to give Internet users in France and Russia the chance to discover the cinematic history of the partner country. It offers free and pay-per-view access, with films presented in their original version with subtitles.
