Part of the Gazprom-Media Holding since 2014, Central Partnership is a top content production house in the highly competitive Russian market. The company presents at VS Worldwide a large and diverse catalogue full of action and drama, love, history and comedy.
Traditionally, Central Partnership has distributed top quality and varied genres, from epic scale adventures to action, romantic and genre films, but since a couple of year is also putting strong emphasis on television series. This diversification is being expressed on the company’s booth at Virtual Screenings Worldwide with seven high end titles, four miniseries and three films.
The offering is headed by three action films: 3X Media Group’ Mission “Sky” (‘100), Production Company Sreda’ Ostap Bender. The Empire’s Gold (‘87) and Interfest, Star Media and DaProduction The Pilot: A Battle for Survival (‘107).
On the first, the film is based on a true story of heroism during the Syrian war, which took place in 2015. Lieutenant colonel Oleg Soshnikov and captain Konstantin Muravyov are deployed to Khmeimim air base in Syria. The second confirmed that the hunt for imperial gold continues: a priceless scepter, a treasure that could secure a worry-free life in sunny Rio de Janeiro for Ibrahim Bender and his young apprentice Ostap, has slipped from under their noses and ended up in possession of Nestor Makhno, an anarchist army commander. And the third is contextualized on December of 1941, Northwestern Front, where a German tank column is moving towards Moscow: during a mission to stop the enemy advance, Nikolai Komlev’s IL-2 is shot down. Komlev manages to crash-land his plane in a remote forest clearing. He’s alive, but far from friendly territory.
On the series side, three titles are highlighted: first, Production Company Sreda and TV-3 coproduction Gogol (8x’48) a thriller series based on both the biography of the “”Russian Edgar Allan Poe””, central gothic-style writer of the XIX century, Nikolai Gogol, and his enigmatic stories.
Second, The Blackout (6x’48), an action miniseries from Premier Studios and TV-3 showing a near future where, as a result of an unknown cataclysm, communication with most of the Earth is lost. Military recon missions reveal that all people living there died, apparently from a poison generated by their own bodies. The world has become divided into a global quarantined zone and a small “Circle of Life.”
Third, Valery Todorovsky Production Company The Bolshoi (4x’48), a ballet drama series in the set of the Bolshoi theatre about the story of a young, provincial girl who dreams of becoming a ballerina. And four Max Volovik Films and Magnum short-form series Tenderness (11x’15) where, during a spur-of-the-moment trip to St. Petersburg, chief financial officer Elena unexpectedly meets the man of her dreams – and then, equally unexpectedly, loses him again.
