The Orenburg film industry supported by the regional Government


On Friday, July 29, I signed a cooperation agreement on the development of the cinema industry with the Government of the Orenburg Region.

The following personalities took part in the signing event: Yuriy Berg, Governor of the Orenburg Region, Grigoriy Ivliev, Chairman of the Committee for Culture at the State Duma, Viktor Zavarzin, Chairman of the Committee for Defense at the State Duma, and Victor Shorikov, Minister of Culture and Public and External Affairs of the Orenburg Region, and many others.

The project to create a contemporary cultural and information space was initiated by the Yedynaya Rossiya party, and backed by the Government of the country. At the meeting of the Council on Cinematography, which was held in February, 2011, V.V. Putin, Chairman of the RF Government, emphasized the importance of the project KINOCLUB: Culture, Education, and Communication.

The Orenburg Region joined the Kinoclub this year. Today, the region has submitted five social objects and several commercial objects as part of this project.

The agreement provides for the creation of five modern cinema centers in cities with a population totaling at least 100 thousand people. The first applicants for construction are the following: the cities of Gay, Mednogorsk, Buzuluk, and Buguruslan. Federal budget funds have been planned for these projects. Commercial projects will be carried out with the funds of our company KinoCity Management and with the active cooperation of regional and municipal authorities. 

We have been operating in Orenburg for quite a long time; we opened the KinoFresh cinema theater together with the Profit Cinema Company, and this fall, we are planning to open a multimedia educational and leisure center with six-hall cinema theater at the Gulliver Shopping Center.

The regional Governor has instructed the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Property Management to prepare the documents as quickly as possible and give the project trustees comprehensive assistance during the actual implementation of the project.

The Ministry of Culture and Public and External Affairs of the Orenburg Region and the State Unitary Enterprise, Oblkinovideo, will be responsible for implementing the project in the region.
