VOSTOK + EUROPEAN SHORT PITCH
European Short Pitch
this is assistance in the development of short films, pitching and networking - a co-production forum.
Films developed within the framework of the laboratory regularly participate in the competitive programs of class A film festivals. The annual program, which has been running since 2007, aims to discover and support young talented filmmakers creating short films, as well as to develop co-production between film industry professionals from all over Europe.
YANNA BURYAK,
"For our agency, this partnership is especially important. In 2016, me and screenwriter Daria Vlasova became the first and only Russian participants in the European Short Pitch. We presented the project "Milk", which was shown for the first time at the Berlinale, and after that at the "Kinotavr", where the film was awarded a special mention by the jury and a prize from the Guild of Film Critics and Critics. After the film received such a wide distribution around the world that it gained the status of the highest grossing feature short film in the Russian Federation. We hope that the next Russian participant will have an equally bright success story!"

Also, as a bonus, authors whose films are included in the catalog of the VOSTOK agency will be able to remotely participate in the ESP educational program and follow the pitching live.
Thanks to the success of the Russian pioneers, now cooperation with ESP will allow one Russian project to participate in the entire program without paying a participation fee!
Yanna Buryak and Nicolaï Iarochenko will lead a master class that will provide an analytical overview of the international and domestic short film market, with an emphasis on the ways in which the Russian and European film industries interact. Among other things, VOSTOK, together with partners Moviestart, Kino-Teatr.ru and Eastwood Agency, created a brochure highlighting key players in the Russian film industry.
To participate in the film forum, VOSTOK will invite one experienced Russian producer who is ready to review the projects presented at the pitching and consult with their creators.
