The Russian Cinema Research Group at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London, is affiliated to the Centre for Russian Studies and was founded in the autumn of 2002. It draws upon the holdings of the SSEES Video and DVD collection, on which information can be found at the SSEES Film and Video Database, and on the expertise of staff working on Russian film in SSEES, UCL and other British universities.


The Research Group holds regular work in progress seminars and welcomes visiting scholars working in the field. In the 2008-2009 session it marked the centenary of the release of the first feature film in Russia in October 1908 by holding 10 seminars, assessing a significant film for each decade of Russian film history.
