Organizer Roskino’s Evgenia Markova says the event’s main purpose is to “promote top national projects that will place their creators and cast on the forefront,” according to the statement. Russian stars and their views on the world arena will also be the focus of a separate session this year.
Participants include international casting director Frank Moiselle; actor and Key Buyers Event ambassadors Yuri Kolokolnikov; talent agent Richard Cook; and emerging actress Sofia Lebedeva and producer Gudny Hummelvoll.
‘It’s a hot topic to discuss,’ said Markova, citing the recent announcement of the Cannes Film Festival’s roster, which features six Russian films (including two in the main category), as more evidence that Russian performers and producers are gaining traction around the world.
A combination of their deep cultural roots and openness and courage to discuss difficult subjects and study all kinds of topics that affect Russians and people throughout the world, according to my point of view, Russian talents have their vision on the world.” “They want to tell stories that will resonate with people around the world.”

To put it another way, “My job will never be tedious or uninteresting.”
