Please accept my most sincere congratulations on Russian Cinema Day!
Cinema has always been and remains a powerful resource for broadening the horizons and understanding of the world, exploring countries, the culture of peoples and their traditions. And it is no accident that the Kazan International Muslim Film Festival has been held in the Republic of Tatarstan for the past 15 years, which brings together filmmakers from around the world and gives thousands of spectators the opportunity to see the best film festival films.
It is gratifying that today, great cinema has returned to our lives, and film screening has become available thanks to the implementation of the federal program of the Film Fund. For five years, 22 cinema halls have been modernized in cities and regions of the republic. The viewer is in a hurry to the new generation cinemas and the task of film industry workers and filmmakers is to fill this space with deep and vivid movies.
Today, in the age of high technology, anyone who creates video can easily immerse himself in the film process and find his own creative path. There are many active creative youth in Tatarstan who, through their projects, prove their readiness to solve difficult problems, not only in the field of creativity, but also in the field of promoting their projects, because in the republic measures of state support for our filmmakers have been taken.
The Republic of Tatarstan has always been and remains attractive to filmmakers from around the world. Currently, work is underway to create a film commission in the region, which will allow large domestic and foreign film companies to make turnkey films.
Dear cinematographers, animators, documentary filmmakers, film distribution and movie network workers, as well as film enthusiasts! I sincerely congratulate you on your professional holiday and sincerely hope that our cinema can gain a decent height! I wish you good luck, inspiration and new creative achievements, and the audience - unforgettable minutes of joy from meetings with the beautiful, unique and exciting world of cinema!
