The 10th Meetings with Russian Culture: Cinema film festival started in Verona. This year it is dedicated to the work of director Andrei Konchalovsky. Meetings are held at Palazzo della Gran Guardia every Monday at 20:30 until March 18. Admission is free.

The audience watched the Uncle Vanya movie on February 4. It was filmed in 1970.
