The first film market "Eurasia Film Market" will be organized within the framework of the International Film Festival "Eurasia", which will become one of the most significant events of EXPO-2017, said the Minister of Culture and Sports of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Arystanbek Mukhamediuly, at a press conference following the meeting of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

The film market is actually a business fair, where the subject of presentation, purchase and sale is film production.

If the festival includes a visit to film screenings, then within the film market is a real movie trade - the sale and purchase of films, just shown at the festival. Film companies-rights holders will demonstrate new films and fragments of unfinished paintings. In addition, the film market will become a platform for professional self-education: for the producers and directors will hold conferences, round tables, thematic discussions, master classes.

"At all major film festivals in the world, the film market is of great interest among professionals," Mukhamediuly said.
