The Russian animated film The Snow Queen will be the first film produced in Russia to be released in wide distribution abroad, according to representatives of the Russian Cinema Fund.

"The Russian cinema has good commercial potential, it can be successfully sold abroad,” assured the organizers of the joint stand of Russian Cinema at the European Film Market at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival. 

“The results of the stand inspire,” said Anton Malyshev, executive director of the Russian Cinema Fund. “The first big success was the recent achievement of the animation studio Wizart Animation. The company has signed contracts for the release of the sequel to The Snow Queen in 2015 in the U.K. and South Korea. Such successes of our movies, as far as I remember, have never happened before!”

He continued, “The interest of the foreign public in Russian movies is big, including animation, genre movies and action movies. These are the traditionally exported types of movies. Our animation is interesting for the Middle East, United Kingdom, Korea. The action genre is interesting for Asian companies. And, of course, Eastern Europe is interested in our films, even ones as difficult asVysotskyThank You for Living.”
