This year Riki Goup is participating in AFM at ROSKINO – Russian Cinema Worldwide stand. The company is presenting three animated features in its new AFM line up: My Toy Panda, My Friend Finnick and Super Tina. “This is a new step in the development of our company, as we present original features, which are not in any way connected with Kikoriki feature franchise, – comments Diana Yurinova, VP, International business development and distribution. – “My Toy Panda” is an adventure comedy for the family audience, which is now in production and will be released in 2019. At the market we are planning to find international partners for theatrical distribution from all around the world. “My Friend Finnick” and “Super Tina” are in development at the moment and we are considering the options of co-production or other forms of cooperation with international companies. AFM is a very important market for us, as the key players of the industry, who set the trends in film and animation development, usually attend this market”.
Riki Group will be based at Roskino suite Loews #446 from October 31 to November 7.
