The General Director of the Agency for the Strategic Initiatives Svetlana Chupsheva noted that for the agency this project is an excellent opportunity to distribute interesting projects in Russian regions. "For our agency, which is engaged in distributing the best projects aimed at the development of regions, this project absolutely meets these goals: the creation of a new cluster, a new growing-point that will be of interest to Russian and foreign tourists," - she said.
In his turn, CEO of KINODANZ Evgeniy Melentyev pointed out that this step is a good opportunity for KINODANZ to get closer to the film companies of the countries of the Asia-Pacific region.
"The company is now focusing on the Asian markets, which implies partnership with China, Japan, and Korea. The creation of a production platform directly in Sakhalin and co-production in this region is strategically important for us," explained Evgeniy Melentyev.
The founding of the platform will allow starting filming in the region involving large American and Chinese companies already this year.
