Central Partnership has signed an agreement with Four Star Films, the largest distributor in the Middle East

From January 1, 2023, the largest Middle Eastern distributor — Four Star Films — will release projects of the Central Partnership film company (part of Gazprom-Media Holding) under an exclusive long-term agreement. The partnership is for 2 years with automatic extension.
Four Star Films becomes the official distributor of Central Partnership films with the highest box office potential in the Middle East. In case of interest, Four Star Films will be able to exercise other types of rights in the territories of presence, in addition to film distribution. Films will be shown in English with subtitles in national languages.

The Middle East market is one of the most attractive for distribution in the short term. We try to produce and release films with high box office potential targeted to a mass audience. These are exactly the films that are in demand in the countries of the Middle East. Four Star Films is the distribution leader in this territory and we are excited to start a partnership that involves the painstaking development of marketing strategies for each project. I am convinced that such an approach, which is based on rich joint experience and unique expertise, will allow the widest and most effective release of films in the Middle East.
Vadim Vereshchagin
