Red Westerns in Rotterdam
The organisers of the International Film Festival Rotterdam have announced that the next edition will include a special theme programme entitled dedicated to cowboy movies from the communist era.
The IFFR will be the first film festival to screen an extensive selection of westerns produced in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe between 1924 and 1980. These films were extremely popular in the East Bloc countries but have only rarely been seen in the West.
The 40th edition of the IFFR is scheduled to run from 26 January to 6 February 2011.
