The State Museum and Exhibition Centre Rosphoto presents an exhibition of Soviet film stills within the framework of the Year of Russian Cinema. The exhibited works include photographs taken for different movies from the period starting with the 1930s to 1971.

The authors of the film stills remain unknown since it was common practice to ignore the signatures on photographs sent to cinema theatres and the press.

The displayed works are divided into two parts. The first one consists of film stills for the classical movies of the 1930s and come from the album published by The Leningrad Society of Educational and Scientific Cinematography (1936–1939). Several such educational albums dedicated to the history of Russian and foreign cinema were issued in 1937. The exhibition features the contents of the third volume illustrating the sound film era in the Soviet Union.
