So many questions:)
Books are deeper and more interesting than their film versions. But there are some perfect films by books, for instance "Heart of a dog" by Bulgakov's story or "Painted veil" by Maugham's novell.
There are some cinematographic festivals in Russia, but I think it's more for hanging out of celebrities.
I know nothing about successful russian directors in Hollywood.
I like different genres, besides comics. I can't take it seriously:)
Russia has many of cinematographic masterpieces, but mostly of SU period. Even now we watch soviet films of 60-80th with more pleasure than modern ones. I think, if people in other countries watch those films, they would like them.
I love reading books and watching films. I like different kinds of genres like time period-romantic films, action and horror/thriller/mystery. I love to read Stephen King's books as well as to watch movies based on his books and I would say it's difficult for me to say which one I like better because they're both good
We have film festivals in my country but I'm not really into them, I prefer the Cannes Film Festival
I don't know if any Filipino directors or producers work in Hollywood but I'm sure there's at least one who works there
Subtitles and dubbing are good in my opinion as long as they're not awkward
From my experience, soviet movies are much more similar to text of a book than USA movies.
On YouTube there some Soviet movies with English subtitles. Few examples:
The Hound of the Baskervilles (1981)
La Dame de Monsoreau (1997)
