Its screenings will take place on February 23rd. Also, at our stand, ‘Pulse’ sports drama and ’Mavka. The Forest Song’ animated film are represented.

FILM.UA Group Distribution has already closed the first deals! ‘The Rising Hawk’ historical action film by Kinorob studio was sold to the Baltic States (Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia), where it will be distributed by Volga company, and to Germany, and German-speaking European countries. Rights in this territory were acquired by the Capelight Pictures. This company, among others, was responsible for bringing this year’s Oscar winner, ‘Parasite’, to the German audience.

Also, Esen Elektronik company had purchased theatrical rights in ‘The Rising Hawk’ historical action film, and ‘Foxter and Max’ fantasy adventure film by PRONTO FILM for Turkey.

As a continuance, our films venture to new countries. This trend is very positive, and we work to improve it yet!”
