Fifth Arthouse Film Festival
Background and goals

In 2005 a group of leaders in the field of Kyrgyz cinema decided to develop a concept and strategy of cinema development in Kyrgyzstan in order to find ways of solving existing problems in this sector.
Finally a strategic document consisting of 43 pages was developed – Target programme “ Kyrgyz Cinema – 2010”, later named as “Strategy 10+”.

 

This document covers all main directions in development of Kyrgyz cinema: education, technical equipment, film production, author’s rights, distribution and marketing, film festival and TV channel of arthouse cinema.
Annually report round table is held, where the results of implemented work are discussed, moreover the plans for every next year are established. Every time, while realizing the projects, we get confirmation that the goals of the Strategy 10+ can be reached.

Results:

  • Kyrgyz films are invited to International film festivals
  • Kyrgyz films have world distribution

  • Kyrgyz film projects are supported by western film funds
  • Kyrgyz cinema is known, everyone talk about it and watch it
