VEGA FILM is a film production company founded in Moscow in 2014 and is engaged in production of feature and documentary films. We pay special attention to debuts and socially significant films.
VEGA FILM is focused on Russian independent films. We give preference to modern projects with bright statements of young filmmakers. We support debutants to find financing and present our films at international film festivals.
We are interested in projects that contain new statements, new forms, a new film language. For some films we organize co-production together with other countries.
VEGA FILM opened the names of Kseniya Zueva, Evgenia Yatskina, Alyona Rubinshtein, Maria Ignatenko and Veta Geraskina for Russian cinema. Their first features were critically acclaimed at both Russian and international film festivals.
