Film Studios: Who Will Win the Competition?
Saturday, February 4th, 15:30-17:00
The producer’s choice of studio complex is not just determined by the number of film sets, modern equipment and qualified employees, but also by a range of external factors, from the state of urban infrastructure and loyalty of the local authorities to the country’s law concerning cinema on the whole. Producers have the right to choose where to shoot: in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Minsk, Prague, Kyiv and even in the States.
That’s why Russian studios have to get involved in competing in the global market: they are trying to attract foreign producers and keep hold of local producers who often choose to shoot in studios abroad, as this is usually cheaper. Who will win this fight?
