Vitaly Vsevolodovich Mansky (Russian: Виталий Всеволодович Манский, Ukrainian: Віталій Всеволодович Манський; born 2 December 1963 in Lviv, Ukrainian SSR, Soviet Union[1]) is a Russian documentary film director.[2] He is the founder of a festival of documentary movies, ArtDocFest[3] and has resided in Riga since 2014.[4] Artdocfest has since collaborated with the Riga International Film Festival.[5]

Political stance[edit]

In March 2014, Mansky signed an open letter "We are with you!" to support Ukrainian filmmakers.[6]

In 2018, he supported the European Film Academy's appeal in defense of Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, who was imprisoned in Russia.[7]

On December 2020, Mansky went for a solitary manifestation outside the Federal Security Service building at the Lubyanka Square, holding men's underpants. The manifestation took place after the publication of the Alexei Navalny's conversation with his alleged poisoner.[8]

In February 2022, Mansky spoke out against the Russian invasion of Ukraine. In April the same year, he expressed his anti-war views at a rally in Riga.[9][10]

Following Nikita Mikhalkov's request, the Russian Interior Ministry added Vitaly Mansky on the wanted list in September 2022 for slander.[11]
