During the luncheon Commissioner Eleonora Granata Jenkinson announced a series of important initiative to connect the USA film biz with the Russian filmmakers, to promote and support Russian film distribution in the U.S., to enable and facilitate co-productions as well as attract U.S. productions to shoot in Russia."The Russian Film Commission USA is now an official  member of AFCI."

Many of the executives attending were excitedly anticipating trips to Cannes in a few days where Roskino's CEO Katya Mtsitouridze will again manage the successful Russian Pavilion on the Croisette.  Many of these executives in June will go to Moscow to attend the DOORS Screenings in Moscow June 22-24 which will take place during Moscow International Film Festival.  The Moscow event, sponsored by Roskino, will feature new Russian films, meetings with filmmakers and film trade conferences and panels.

Russian cinema is highly regarded in LA and these initiatives by the Russian Film Commission and Roskino have been met by interest and excitement as to their future activities and new Russian film screenings in Moscow and in L.A.
