These films come from such film studios as Mosfilm, Lenfilm, Gorkii, and Sverdlovsk. This travel bureau cum art and culture society promotes cultural contacts between the United States and the Soviet Union. One important part of its program is the weekly showing of new and recent Soviet films in San Francisco. Russart purchases and retains copies of most of these films, though some are borrowed or rented. Films are both 35 mm and 16 mm. Interested scholars may want to contact Russart's president, Dmitry P. Gribanowski, about the possibility of using this film collection for individual research projects. A partial listing of Russart film holdings follows.
