Russia’s Ministry Of Culture Calls For More Patriotic, Anti-Extremist Movies | Film News
There is a call from the Russian Ministry Of Culture for more patriotic, anti-extremist movies that don’t criticise Mother Russia. With recent laws passed criminalising mockery of the national anthem, is anyone seeing a strong theme here?
Russian film-makers hoping to win state funding for projects will have to satisfy eight preferred topics including stories about protagonists of “exemplary labour”, tales that herald “traditional values”, or stories of “heroes fighting crime, terrorism and extremism”.
In sum, the Ministry wants to instill a sense of patriotism and conservative thought amongst its population through film – something easily consumed by the majority.
