One of the most famous Russian filmmakers, Nikita Sergeyevich Mikhalkov was born in 1945 in Moscow into the distinguished, artistic Mikhalkov family. His older brother is a celebrated filmmaker Andrei Konchalovsky.  He studied directing at The Gerasimov Institute of Cinematography (VGIK) under Mikhail Romm graduating in 1971. He is also well-known as a versatile actor.

Fame and recognition came with his first feature At Home among Strangers (1974). Mikhalkov established an international reputation with his second feature, A Slave of Love (1976). Inspired by the themes from the Russian classical literature, An Unfinished Piece for Mechanical Piano (1977) and A Few Days in the Life of I.I.Oblomov won several awards. Based on several short stories by Chekhov, the Italian-produced Dark Eyes (1987) was highly praised, and it received the Best Actor Prize (Marcello Mastroianni) at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival and an Academy Award nomination for his performance. It also won the David di Donatello for Best Actress (Yelena Safonova).

Mikhalkov's next film, Close to Eden (1991) received the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival as well as the Russian Academy Award and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Mikhalkov's most famous production to date, Burnt by the Sun (1994), received the Grand Prize at Cannes and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, among many other honours.

His most epic venture to date, The Barber of Siberia (1998) became a runaway box office success.

12, a Russian adaptation of Sidney Lumet's drama 12 Angry Men, received a special Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival and an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Language Film.
