MOSCOW, June 10. /TASS/. The Oscar-winning Edward Snowden documentary Citizenfour will premiere at the 37th Moscow International Film Festival, set to run June 19-26, the forum’s press service has said.
The documentary by US director Laura Poitras, concerning Snowden and the National Security Agency (NSA) spying scandal, will be shown in the non-competition section Svobodnaya Mysl (Free Thought).
The film, a US-German production, won the Oscar for best documentary this year, as well as the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) and Directors Guild of America awards.
Citizenfour, "an uncompromising documentary thriller about one of the most sensational scandals of the past decade," premiered at festivals worldwide, including in Berlin, New York and Amsterdam.
Director Laura Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald received classified documents from Snowden proving the interference of authorities into private life.
In 2013, Snowden, a former NSA contractor, leaked to the media documents revealing details of a global surveillance apparatus run by the US intelligence organization in close cooperation with the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada.
