Iskusstvo Kino – Trial ended 28 May 2013

Iskusstvo Kino, established in 1931, is the leading journal of Russian, and formerly Soviet, cinema. Iskusstvo kino includes critical reviews of both domestic and foreign film, as well as scholarly articles on cinematic theory and history as well as the Russian culture and arts scene. It was first published under title Proletarskoe kino(1931-1932), then Sovetskoe kino(1933-1935), and finally under the present name (since 1936).

Production of the Iskusstvo Kino Digital Archive is currently underway, and content will be continuously added to this resource for several weeks during the pre-publication period. Thank you for your understanding.
Publication of Iskusstvo kino was suspended in 1942-1943, and no issues were produced. The lack of database content for this period is not a gap, but reflects the publication schedule during these challenging years.
