MIFF History:
    For the first time the Moscow Film Festival was held in 1935. Essentially a different festival was renewed in 1959 and was held every odd year. Grand Prizes and Golden Prizes were awarded at different times (it must be noted that gold medals of 1959-1967 should not be equaled to golden prizes of 1969-1987 which were truly principal prizes by definition).
