Yolki , also known as Six Degrees of Celebration, is a 2010 Russian comedy film directed by Timur Bekmambetov. Two sequels have been released, including Yolki 2 in 2011 and Yolki 3 in 2013. The films in the series represent a Russian tradition of the "New Year's Movie" where films that take place during the holiday season tap into the vein of hope, optimism, and possibility associated with New Year's in the Russian culture. Other examples include The Irony of Fate and The Irony of Fate 2 (also directed by Bekmambetov). Typically such films are released in December, just before the start of the holidays in Russia.
