Rask is representing Estonian film producer Allfilm in a dispute over funding it received over the Estonian Film Institute’s "EV100" film competition.

Accordingt to Rask, in December 2012, the Estonian Film Institute announced a competition to produce films for the Republic of Estonia’s 100th anniversary. Allfilm, which has produced such well-known films in Estonia as Tangerines and The Fencer, submitted several proposals. The film contest’s results were declared in March 2016, and two of the company's films — Truth and Justice and Deal or no Deal — received funding.

Factory OU, which did not receive any financing for its submissions, challenged the results in Administrative Court. At the beginning of October, 2016, the Court dismissed Factory OU’s claims, agreeing with Allfilm and the Estonian Film Institute that no violation existed in the judging and that there was no reason to withdraw Allfilm's funding.

Partner Ramon Rask led the team representing Allfilm in the matter.
