Moscow Jewish Film Festival has announced its educational program: a cycle of lectures and discussions thematically linked with film screenings.

The educational program aims at making the Moscow Jewish Film Festival a platform within which the viewers will be able to independently explore Jewish culture by choosing events of their own interest. The wide range of events will include Oleg Dorman telling about Rudolf Barshai; Yuri Tabak, Ludmila Ulitskaya and Galina Zelenina having a conversation about relations between Catholicism and Judaism; Mikhail Chlenov exploring phenomenon of refuseniks in the USSR; Lyalya Kandaurova talking about connections between Jewish folklore and Western European classics; and Shakespeare researcher Aleksey Bartoshevich discussing characters in «The Merchant of Venice». Screenwriter Andrei Malaev-Babel, Hungarian actor Géza Röhrig, and Russian film director Alexander Mitta will become special guests of the cycle.
