The Seliger Culture and Recreation Centre (formerly Seliger Cinema) has been showing films in Demyansk since 1978.
In 2011-2013, the building was overhauled, and in 2018, new up-to-date digital film equipment was installed. The Seliger Centre’s interiors and equipment meet all the latest standards.
Seliger Centre has had a positive experience organising film festivals at various levels and owns the My Love is Cinema brand – a film festival held for 13 years in Demyansk.
The centre has seen visits by popular actors and celebrities such as Irina Shevchuk, Zinaida Kiriyenko, Aristarkh Livanov, Nikita Dzhigurda, Irena Morozova, Alexander Mikhailov, Natalya Varlei, Larisa Golubkina, Alexei Petrenko, Irina Miroshnichenko, Yury Chernov, Yelena Tsyplakova, and Irina Lachina.
It hosts several creative associations and clubs:
- Russian Song folk choir
The group frequently performs in concert, and regularly competes at, and wins, festivals and contests at various levels. It participates in the annual folk festival in Vitoslavlitsy (Novgorod) and often tours the region. The ensemble has received numerous awards and certificates.
- Rovesnik award-winning children’s theatre company
With actors range from age 7 to 15, the company’s new theatrical productions are always popular with the public.
