The delegation officially representing Russia at the Clermont-Ferrand festival and film market is the VOSTOK distribution company and the Eastwood Agency, an agency for promoting Russian films at domestic and foreign film festivals.

"We and Eastwood Agency have merged our catalogs. For the Clermont-Ferrand 2021 film market, we have compiled a program consisting of Russian films from 2019-2020 that received the largest number of selections and awards at the most prestigious world festivals. The films of the program are united by the theme of masculinity in modern Russia. In the center of each picture is a man who seeks to define his own boundaries or to find himself beyond them," says the founders of VOSTOK Yanna Buryak and Nikolai Yaroshenko.
