The All-Russian Forum Kino Rossiyi 2010 (Russian Cinema 20202)

It is an absolute must for us to consolidate our film industry. It is only through consistent dialogue, through closely associated and synchronized efforts that a viable, economical, and independent national film industry can be born.

It is impossible to work out strategic guidelines and a “road map” for their implementation without uniting all the interested parties together. It is namely for this reason that the Forum, where the opinions of all the important participants of the film industry should be heard and taken into consideration, has been organized. The Forum should become “the voice of the film industry”, the main platform for dialogue and communication between the business world, public organizations, and the State.
First and foremost, the Forum will be a medium for all those people who are ready to provide clearly thought-out, justified, and concrete suggestions, and for those who have had experience in implementing successful projects within the large spectrum of the cinema industry.
The initiators of the project:
Eduard Anatolyevich Pichugin; Fedor Sergeyevich Bondarchuk
Project objective:
Working out and implementing the Strategy for the development of domestic cinema industry until 2020.
Project challenge:
Consolidating the efforts of all the participants working in the cinema industry in order to maintain long-term sustained development of the Russian film industry by increasing the competitiveness of our national cinematography on the world market.
Project implementation methods:
The project will be organized through wide-open debatable platforms involving all the leading players of the Russian cinema industry.

All the aspects of this sector – from initial plans created by working groups to individual spectators who enter cinema theaters – are inseparably linked. For each link of the chain to be successful, all the others must also be successful.
