Moscow co-pro forum reveals lineup

Projects come from former Soviet states

MOSCOW — Moscow’s third Co-production Forum, which runs June 27-28 during the Moscow Film Festival, announced its lineup Monday.

Eighteen projects, focused on co-operation between Russia, the Baltics, Georgia and other former Soviet republics, will be discussed.

The forum, part of an independent industry side-bar, the Moscow Business Square, will give producers the chance to present projects to potential partners.

All the features and docs have finalized scripts, a producer and director attached, have at least 20% of funding in place and have strong potential for international or European distribution.
