Proline Film was founded in 2004 by a famous Russian movie composer and producer Andrey Sigle. The Studio cooperates with many independent European producers, major funds, film studios and TV channels such as: «Le Canal+» (France), «Downtown Pictures» (Italy), «Mact Productions» (France), «Rezo Films» (France), «Barrandov» (Check Republic), «Sagafilm» (Iceland), «Generator Post» (Finland) and others.
Our mission is to promote Russian Auteur Cinema worldwide.
«The Sun» (2005) directed by famous Russian cinema figure Alexander Sokurov was the first Studio’s project. It was the first movie in the past five years to represent Russia at the 55th International Film Festival in Berlin. «The Sun» and «The Ugly Swans» by Konstantin Lopushansky (screen version of the original Strugatsky brothers’ novel) are the following reflection of the Studio’s high art standards.
In 2006 the Studio was the co-producer of «Serko» – a French project by Joel Farges starring Aleksey Chadov and Jacques Gamblin. In 2007 the studio presented «Alexandra» at Cannes International Film Festival, a movie by Alexander Sokurov starring opera diva Galina Vishnevskaya.
In the following year Proline Film released a new movie called «The Orchard» by Sergey Ovcharov (screen version of Anton Chekhov’s famous comedy «The Cherry Orchard»). The world premiere of the film took place at Moscow International Film Festival.
In 2011 «Faust» by Alexander Sokurov won The Golden Lion at Venice Film Festival.
In 2013 Proline Film presented a new film by Konstantin Lopushansky «The Role» , nominated for «Best movie» at Moscow International Film Festival.
