The Wizart Animation Hong Kong line-up is headlined by The Snow Queen: Mirrorlands by Robert Lence and Alexey Tsitsilin, the fourth installment of the topmost international box office hit in the records of Russian independent animation. The portfolio also includes Fantastic Return to Oz and Sheep and Wolves: Pig Deal. The Wizart team intends to negotiate with buyers from China, India, Korea, and other players of the Asian market.
Yuri Moskvin, Wizart Managing Producer:
‘We are hoping for a productive time in Hong Kong. Last year The Snow Queen 3: Fire and Ice scooped a Russian record-breaking $12 mln in China. As a consequence, the Asian buyers began to take a keener interest in our titles. The release of the fourth installment of the franchise is slated for April, so we are coming to the market in the run- up to a big release expected by many companies in Southeast Asia. We are happy to keep working with Roskino at the Russian umbrella stand.’
