Russia: Ban on films that ‘denigrate Russia’s culture’

19 January 2015

Russia’s culture ministry has prepared new requirements for issuing exhibition licenses under which movies that “threaten national unity of the country or denigrate its culture” will be banned.

The new date for enacting the requirements hasn’t been announced yet. Similarly, it is not clear who will be making decisions regarding films’ compliance with the requirements and how they will be interpreted. The new law will be applied to all movies, Hollywood and Russian alike.
