Panel Session
Courtyard H, Krasnodar Region Hall

Filmmaking is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. Its scope has doubled on a global scale over the past decade. Film production in regional locations plays an important role in shaping the cultural image of both a region and a country as a whole. Creating a diversified economy is one of the key focuses in regional development as a prerequisite for enhancing their competitiveness and investment appeal, thus the process of creating film clusters has begun in a number of Russian regions. How is the creative economy developing in Russia? Are there any successful examples of infrastructure being built to develop film production in the regions? What support measures are essential to the development of cinema and animation in Russia? What is the current state of filmmaking in the regions? Will the regions become new growth drivers for national cinematography?
