NOW STREAMING: Kino Klassika launches streaming platform Klassiki Online

Kino Klassika Foundation launches Klassiki, a new video-on-demand platform dedicated to classic cinema from Russia & the region (Free until 04 APR!).

Klassiki (Russian for ‘classics’) will host a curated permanent collection of over 60 films that represent the breadth and depth of the best filmmaking from Russia, Ukraine, the Caucasus and Central Asia. Each week audiences will also have time-limited access to a contemporary title selected by the Klassiki team.

Klassiki will be free for everyone for the first two months, and a monthly charge of £5.99 will apply from 04 APR. The purpose-built streaming platform has been made possible with funding from the National Lottery, giving more audiences in the UK the opportunity to experience Russian film.

Sign up as a free member before 04 APR and you’ll get lifetime access to 30 classic films from the Klassiki library and, until charging starts, access to an extended library of over 60 classic films plus a brand-new film each week.

Paid-only access starts on 04 APR with a monthly subscription fee, giving you access to even more classic films. At the time of posting, Klassiki was offering a 50% lifetime discount on membership at £2.99 per month.

For more information and to sign up for the launch offer, head over to Klassiki Online.

RADIANT CIRCUS is powered by monthly subscribers. 40% of fees now directly supports indie cinema events across London.

The indie screen culture we love has taken a battering. Coronavirus has closed venues, silenced exhibitors & isolated audiences.

To help reanimate movies beyond the mainstream, we’ve relaunched our subscription service as a crowdfunder called REVIVE THE DARK. With the backing of enough subscribers we will be able to:

  • Sponsor DIY, indie & alternative cinema
  • Celebrate outstanding acts of exhibition
  • Expand our scene content & coverage
