Garage Screen was launched in 2012 to bring to Garage’s audience the best of Russian and international filmmaking, including documentary, experimental, and feature films. The selection of films and videos chosen by the Garage team is made up of works that explore various aspects of contemporary art and culture, and rare footage offering insight into the life and work of both famous and little-known contemporary artists, musicians, architects, and performers. There are also documentaries on the making of artworks and exhibitions.
