Short animated films by the Russian studio Soyuzmultfilm will be shown in cinemas and educational institutions in France, Belgium, Austria and other European countries, as well as at festivals, TV channels and digital platforms in Asia. Agreements between the studio and the distributors were reached at the online film market in Toronto (TIFF Industry), TASS reports.

According to Evgenia Markova, general director of Roskino, foreign distributors are showing interest not only in full-length animated films by Russian animators, but also in author's short animation.

The film market in Toronto has made it possible for Anna Kuzina's Warm Star, which previously participated in the Annecy Festival and received awards in Hiroshima, to appear on the screens of France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland. A number of Russian films have been purchased for broadcasting on TV channels and digital platforms in Taiwan and have been invited to participate in Asian festivals.

According to Yuliana Slashcheva, chairman of the board of Soyuzmultfilm, the secret of Russian animation is that it developed in non-market conditions, managed to become an art phenomenon and gain popularity throughout the world.
