Winners for the Golden Unicorn Awards 2021 announced in London

December 7, 2021

The Golden Unicorn Awards is an annual event reflecting the cross-cultural mission of the Russian Film Week Festival; building a bridge between the English-speaking world and the Russian people.

The original unicorn statuettes made of Bohemian crystal glass, containing 24-carat gold leaf, were given to winners in twelve nominations. Each nomination was skillfully interwoven into the play, where Danila Kozlovsky played the Stranger.

Captain Volkonogov Escaped by N. Merkulova and A. Chupov stole the show winning in three categories: best movie, best screenplay and best actor (Yuri Borisov). The UK premiere of the movie earlier opened the Russian Film Week and made a big impact on members of the jury and the audience.
