conference hall (Krasnodar Region stand)

The entertainment industry is developing rapidly throughout the world, including such creative spheres as film production. Today, the film industry is a profitable area for investment where income can be generated over the years. More recently, the development of the film industry has been increasingly influenced by new production technologies as well as innovative ways in which video content is sold, including the emergence of new, unconventional solutions for the monetization of films. How does cinematic progress contribute to regional development? What government support measures are needed to stimulate the production of regional films?
