    Х/ф abbreviation

    Hi all, I need help. I was searching for translation of "Х/ф" but google was not helpful.

    That abbreviation can be found in TV shows names on Russia 1 channel:
    "11:10 Служанка трех господ. Х/ф"
    "03:05 Не сошлись характерами. Х/ф"

    Other similar abbreviations you might see:

    д/ф - документальный фильм - "documentary" (often used in contrast to х/ф)
    м/ф - мультипликационный фильм - "animated cartoon" (often shortened to мультфильм)
    к/ф - кинофильм - "film made to be shown in cinema theaters"
    т/ф - телевизионный фильм - "made-for-TV film"

    Incidentally, my first thought when I saw "Х/ф" was that ф is an abbreviation for фиг, and Х is short for... never mind! ))))

    PS. If it's a rather mediocre film and you were indifferent to it, I think it would be correct (and not excessively rude) to say "Такая хрень мне пофиг," which is roughly like saying "I don't give a fart about such a pile of baloney." (I.e., in both languages, the boldfaced term is a replacement for a much ruder expression.)

    There is internet/sms slang "х/з", there "з" stands for "знает". Same as "idfk" including "semi-politeness".
