Russian animation presented by ROSKINO at Telefilm Vietnam 2023
Eighteen Russian companies will participate in the international film market Telefilm Vietnam 2023
From June 8 to 10 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, the international film market Telefilm Vietnam will be held. The Russian film industry will be represented at the joint Russian Content Worldwide (RCW) stand organized by ROSKINO, the Russian film promotion body. Eighteen companies will present more than 80 projects—films, series, and animation—to international content buyers.
Content buyers from Vietnam, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, China and other countries will take part in Telefilm Vietnam 2023.
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.’
Traditionally, Russian animation producers perform strongly at film markets. Six Russian companies will bring their projects to Vietnam. At a special presentation organized by ROSKINO, international content buyers will see a number of new animation projects. These are the animated series for teenagers The Steel Family: Brotherhood vs Gold (Voronezh Animation studio) and the full-length animated film Detective Chirp & the Golden Beehive (SMF Animation). This project has recently been released internationally and will be shown in the Middle East, Turkey, Cyprus, Serbia, Croatia, Macedonia, and Bulgaria.
The presentation will also include the animated series Fixies (Riki Group). Last year, BabyRiki, KikoRiki, and PinCode became available in Vietnamese on FTP Play. This year, Riki Group plans to negotiate the sale of new seasons of the Fixies project, whose characters are well known to young viewers in Asia.
International representatives will also be able to see: Champies from Digital Television Russia, Team MATCH. from YARKO and the full-length cartoon Space Dogs. Tropical Adventure from KinoAtis. In total, Russian animation companies will present 25 projects at the Telefilm Vietnam market.
