The RUSSIAN PAVILION at the
The 64th INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL DE CANNES
MAY, 12 - 20


The Russian Pavilion, Russia’s official representative at the Cannes Film Festival and Film market, will be open to public in the Village International from May 12 to May 20 2011, within the 64th International Film Festival de Cannes.


It is a universal platform, intended to promote Russian cinema, as well as establish contacts and effective professional communication.


The goal of The Russian Pavilion is to promote the Russian film industry to the international market.


The Russian Pavilion helps international filmmakers, distributors and media establish contact with the representatives of the Russian film industry (institutions, professional organizations, producers, distribution companies), receive official information about the possibilities of co-production with Russia and participate in Russian film festivals.


The positive experience of The Russian Pavilion in years 2008-2010 has proved to be quite effective according to the experts of the Russian film community (official data listed at www.ruspav.com), suggesting the necessity of holding the Pavilion annually hereafter.


This year Russia is represented by director Bakur Bakuradze, whose film “The Hunter” has been selected to compete at the Film Festival de Cannes ("Un Certain Regard»). The press conference with the cast and crew of the film will be held at The Russian Pavilion. In addition, the Pavilion will screen a number of fresh Russian films, which are currently in various stages of production. Most of those films will be premiered in front of the international community, Russian and foreign press. The organizers believe that finished films will arouse interest amongst selectors of various film festivals and foreign distributors, and are hopeful that films currently in production will be able to find foreign partners for co-production. Presentations in the education sphere will help to develop relationships and enhance cooperation between Russian universities and their foreign colleagues.
