The First Film Festival „Russian Neurosurgeons” will be held during June 19-20, 2019 at the premises of Federal Neurosurgical Centre (Novosibirsk) in the framework of the Siberian Association of neurosurgeons and together with Professor Leonid B. Likhterman.

Medicine is a special science. It is the closest one to the human because thanks to doctors we treat our ailments, both physical and mental. It’s not by chance many consider it rather as an art than a science.

We invite all interested specialists to the first neurosurgical film festival, to an unexpectedly alternative event, following the Hippocrates pronouncement: “Not only the doctor himself should use everything that is necessary for the deal, but also the patient, and the surrounding, and all external circumstances should help the doctor in his work.”

We expect from the participants an informal communication on medicine, combining professional and spiritual experience.

Research- and documentary films and other film documents with medical topic have enduring value for the history of medicine and medical care.

They help to save the image of outstanding medical scholar and their methods of work, make it possible to reconstruct documentarily the development trends of some directions in medicine.
