Roskino, Russia's state-run organization in charge of promoting and exporting Russian films internationally, has brought a selection of titles to this year's AFM (October 31 - November7). Roundup is below.

-Russia's official Oscar entry "White Tiger," which released theatrically in Russia in May. Directed by Karen Shakhnazarov, the film is set in the early 1940s, following a Red Army sergeant obsessed with the destruction of a ghostly White Tiger tank. No U.S. distribution yet.

-Russian-American director Viktor Ginzburg's acclaimed "Generation P" is based on Russia's bestselling novel of the same title, following a futuristic Russia "defined by 100 dollar bills, guns, high-stakes advertising and digitized politicians." Roskino is joining with New World Distribution to bring the film to more than 50 U.S. markets on November 16, with a press screening and cocktail party at AFM on November 5.

-Roskino, Hulu and stateside aggregator Gravitas have also partnered for the exclusive availability of a dozen Russian films on Hulu. Titles included in the November streaming release are 2011's Russian Oscar entry "The Edge" and 2008's Silver Lion winner at the Venice Film Festival, "Paper Soldier." The selection marks the first time contemporary Russian films will be available to a wide U.S. audience. Gravitas and Hulu hatched up this plan after they participated in this summer's Roskino-backed junket to Moscow and St. Petersburg, which brought key distributors to Russia for a crash course in Russian culture.
