"Short films are the heart of the film industry. It is the epicenter of innovation. The world industry is now actively experimenting with new formats in cinema, but in Russia today there is no platform for viewing such films. The goal of the VOSTOK agency is to contribute to the establishment of such a platform in Russia and to help Russian filmmakers working with new formats in cinema to declare themselves at the international level," said Yanna Buryak, founder of the VOSTOK agency.

COURANT3D is an international immersive and interactive film festival that combines technological innovation and artistic experimentation. The festival attracts the attention of major festivals such as Clermont-Ferrand and Interfilm Berlin, and is also supported by Unifrance, CNC and the New Aquitaine region. Courant3D hosts international short film contests in 3D, VR, AR, XR, VBeat, vertical and iA formats. Courant3D is also a film forum and educational platform for students and industry professionals.

The jury of the Courant3D festival consists of 9 people - these are the main representatives of the short film industry from different countries.

Also, with the assistance of Roskino, VOSTOK held a press conference as part of its launch in the Russian pavilion of the 72nd Cannes Film Festival. The goal of the VOSTOK agency is the international promotion and sale of Russian short films.
