Made in Russia brings all genres to Cannes 2019

 

Made in Russia, the united stand of Russian content, kicks off its second year at Marche du film with an extensive line-up of full-length and short films. Organized by Russian Export Center and officially operated by Expocontent company, the stand hosts 17 national companies with their new projects.

Art Pictures Studio presents two highly-awaited sequels, co-produced with Vodorod company. The flagship one is part two of the sci-fi blockbuster Attraction 2 by FyodorBondarchuk. The renowned film director, producer and founder of Art Pictures Studio will present the sequel and other projects of the company at the showcase for international partners. The second part of Ice is also in production. This feature movie is a last year hit in Russia and it’s among the top highest grossing films in national box-office of 2018.
 
According to Mr. Bondarchuk, it’s high time for national companies to expand internationally, as there’s quite a demand on high-end Russian content at the global market. Art Pictures Studio is well prepared for that – the company will showcase a range of genres: sci-fi thriller, romantic drama and adventure.
 
Fyodor Bondarchuk will also present his new film Fyodor Konuykhov co-produced with Vodorod company, about world-known Russian traveler Fyodor Konuykhov and his latest round-the-world trip on the hot air balloon in 2016. 
 
The company also presents sci-fi thriller The Sputnik (co-produced with Vodorod and Hype films) about Soviet astronauts who discover another form of life in space and unintentionally brought it to Earth. Director Egor Abramenko makes his debut in full-length cinema with this project. 

Central Partnership, one of the biggest Russian distributors (part of Gazprom Media holding), keeps up with a diverse line-up.

In Cannes the company launches new adventure drama Silver skates, co-producted by Central partnership, Trité, KIT Group of companies and Kinoslovo studio. The story is set in winter Saint-Petersburg of 1899 and tells about a 18-year-old Matvey, a delivery boy at a famous local bakery. His only treasure is a pair of silver-plated skates he inherited from his father. Meanwhile, a high-ranking official’s daughter Alisa is feeling like a prisoner in her father’s mansion. One day their paths converge...

The distributor traditionally presents best horrors from Russia, including new titles from Svyatoslav Podgayevsky (The Mermaid, the Bride) at this Marche: Yaga. The Terror of the Dark Forest and The Widow. The company will showcase exclusive new materials on these two. The Ninth, a mystical thriller from Non-stop Production, tells about a series of ritual murders of young ladies in the XIX century Saint-Petersburg. Alexander Rodnyansky is among its producers.

Among other novelties are the English-language melodrama See you soon and post-apocalyptic thriller The Blackout from TNT Premier Studios. 

The novelties from Rock Films are presented by international distributors. Alexey Uchitel, an eminent Russian film director, will present his new film Tsoi. The movie evolves around Viktor Tsoi, the most famous Soviet rock star, who dies in a car accident on a Latvian highway. The driver who killed him has to take his body to Leningrad, accompanied by Tsoi’s wife and her new boyfriend, his mistress, his producer, his young son and an obsessed photographer. They don‘t know yet who is driving them. The director also presents his mini series Coronation based on the love story of the last Russian emperor and a famous ballerina.
 
Both projects are distributed by Mint Films International, as well as Rock Films’ musical drama The Battle, while the ethnic drama Whale Hunter is picked up by French distributor Loco Films.
 
As for the studio itself, the key goal this time is finding co-production partners, as Rock Films is launching several large-scale projects, one dedicated to globally famous Soviet composer Dmitry Shostakovich and the other based on the new book about the Volga Germans from Russian award-winning writer Guzel Yakhina.

KD Studios present their flagship fantasy Abigail. It tells the story of Abigail, a young girl living in a city that experienced a mysterious illness epidemic many years ago and was subsequently sealed off from the outside world by the government. Abby’s father fell ill and was taken away when she was a child. While searching for her father, Abby finds out that the epidemic never actually occurred... 

Now in post-production, the film has already been sold to Germany, France, Japan, Brazil, Vietnam, Turkey, Hong Kong, Malaisya where it will be released at the end of August 2019.

The company will also present titles in development, including fantastic action films Identity and Genesis, sci-fi The Forgotten Gods, and flagship fantasy Under the Big Top.

The key projects of Planeta Inform Group of Companies at Made in Russia are Queen of Spades. Through the Looking glass and The Lenin Factor.
 
The Queen of Spades is a horror film. It tells about the sinister ghost of the Queen of Spades who is out for blood, her victims the students of an old boarding school shrouded in gloomy rumors. The teenagers playfully recite an incantation which renders their innermost desires a reality - at the expense of nothing less than their souls. The film has already been sold to Latin America, German speaking Europe, Southeast Asia, so the company also plans to sale it  to USA, UK, France, Spain, Italy, South Korea and Japan. 
 
The historical thriller The Lenin Factor is dedicated to the most famous politician of XX century and his way to power. This film tells the unique and riveting story of Vladimir Lenin, the major figure in the Great October Revolution without who’s involvement the revolution would not have taken place and world history so decisively altered.  We believe that  both European and Asian countries will be interested in this film.

All Media company offers a diverse package, including The Hero, romantic comedy Mistresses, historical adventure The Conquest of Siberia and historical action Saving Leningrad.

Sputnik Vostok Production presents brand-new projects in development – Elsa’s landand The River. 

Russian World Vision brings Barrabas, a fresh interpretation of the famous Bible character’s story. The line-up also includes Pain Threshold, The House Elf, and Break.
