Training of Professional Managers for Cinema Industry


PF “Cinematographers Union of KR” in cooperation with Cinema Development Fund with supporting of Manas University start new project “Training of professional managers for cinema industry”
It will take place February, 15-25, 2011.
Project aimed to develop and improve the weakest part of Kyrgyz cinema - “Management”.
Production part of cinema with all workers (film director, director of photography, script writer etc) become rather weak and ineffective without people who will find resourses for production and sell their products after, without people who will research local and international market to find more reliable development strategy.
Unfortunately, in Kyrgyzstan, there is no educational organization for cinema producers, distributers and marketings. Of course, at present time, some people at privat or governmental cinema studios, perform manager’s work, but they work low professionaly.
At present time Manager’s profession, turn into big and quiet difficult profesion, which demands versatile education in fields: interpersonal attitudes, finansing, managing, promotion and communication.
These courses will give possibility for managers to work two, three times better and effective.
Results: creation of 15 active managers who will develop different other projects after, fasten development of cinema, increasing of working places and cultural growing of country.
