Documentary Filmmaker Kevin McNeer (a past JRFF guest and native Richmonder now living in Moscow) will present his doc-in-progress on Stanislav Sokolov's Hoffmaniada, a stop motion-animated feature film based on the tales of E.T.A.

The 78-minute film has been in the making since 2001; 20 minutes has been completed and will be screened along with McNeer's doc-in-progress and a selection of Sokolov's animated shorts.
