From June 8 to 10 will be held the international film market Telefilm Vietnam where eighteen Russian companies will be represented at the joint Russian Content Worldwide (RCW) stand organized by ROSKINO, featuring more than 80 projects—films, series, and animation for international content buyers.

Acting CEO of ROSKINO, Ekaterina Naumova, says, “Last year, the Russian film industry for the first time was widely represented at Telefilm Vietnam, mainly online, and this was our first acquaintance with this market. As a result of participation, international buyers have become interested in Russian animation projects, documentaries, action films, and comedies, as well as buying format rights to Russian series. This year, in order to more effectively use the opportunities of the film market and build cooperation with local TV channels, VOD platforms and distributors, we are organizing a large-scale offline presence of leading Russian content producers. This format will allow them to personally meet with potential partners, enhance interaction with foreign colleagues, with whom the dialogue was carried out online. Russian companies will present a lot of serial and animated content, as well as large-scale feature films in various genres. We hope that this year the demand for projects from Russia will be much stronger.”
