Russian pics at the EFM are lead by Nikolai Lebedev’s Slavic fantasy “Wolfhound,” which has topped local box office grosses since it was released Dec. 28.
It, like many other Russian titles, is repped by producer-distributor Central Partnership.
Made on a massive-for-Russia budget of $10 million, “Wolfhound” was picked up by Senator for all German-speaking territories, but Central Partnership also sold to Brazil, Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, China, Turkey, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore.
Central Partnership also inked a pre-sale with Japan’s Comstock on “Street Raiders” and sold “Paragraph 78” to Focus Filmes in Brazil.
CP’s VP Armen Dishdishyan hopes to clinch more deals on other offerings such as Pavel Ruminov’s contempo horror pic “Dead Daughters.”
Here in Berlin he’s looking to sell to Western European and English-language territories.
