What they say about
KEY BUYERS EVENT:
digital edition
«It's our priority to support the national industry, especially now – when the global community is struggling to find a way out of the crisis. With production suspended and cinemas closed, export is one of the few fields available to keep the industry thriving. Last year, we supported the Key Buyers Event, and we are confident this event will be of major interest to global companies»

Maxim Ksenzov
Deputy Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation
«It was imperative we joined forces to support this initiative, as Moscow is the heart of the creative industries in Russia. The majority of productions, distributors and media holdings are Moscow-based and many of them have become or aim to become export-oriented. It is important for us to support their international effort – as the crucial investment in our creative economy sector continues to flourish despite the crisis»

Alexey Fursin
Head of the Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development of Moscow city
«Our work continues despite the restrictions enforced by quarantine – production is suspended, but we keep developing new projects and selling new titles. For example, we are now negotiating on 'Sputnik' which was selected for the Tribeca Film Festival. The film will be distributed by IFC Midnight in the USA later this year, as well as released in the UK and Australia. We are also finalizing sales for 'Invasion' and working on further deals for 'Ice-2,' which has already been shown in the UK, USA, France and Switzerland. A platform like the Russian Virtual Market is key to enable us to keep up the pace and present our best titles to international partners, now and in future»
Fedor Bondarchuk
Art Pictures founder, producer and film director
«We had a very successful experience with the first Key Buyers Event in Moscow, and we rely on the new digital format next month. We are going to present exclusive content to the global community with a focus on building new partnerships with VOD platforms»
Vadim Vereshchagin
CEO of Central Partnership
«The Russian industry needs technological and infrastructure solutions that allow content creators to promote content abroad quickly. Transition to online will help to make the necessary leap and work more efficiently within global markets»
