The Greatest Art Form: Opening a Film Cluster in the Far East
2 September 2021

The Far East has a great filmmaking tradition. Residents of Khabarovsk were first introduced to this global industry with the opening of the city’s first cinema in 1910. And in 1925, the Far Eastern Newsreel Studio was established in the city, making it the oldest of its kind in the country (and it still exists to this day). The acclaimed Vasilyev brothers’ film Chapaev was filmed in Primorye Territory, while in 1975, Tokyo hosted the world premiere of Dersu Uzala, which was shot almost in its entirety outdoors in Khabarovsk Territory. The film picked up an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, making it one of three Russian films to win an Oscar. It also took the gold prize at the 9th Moscow International Film Festival in 1975. Today, the Far East is attracting a great deal of interest from Russian and international filmmakers, making it all the more important to offer new forms of support to the industry. What are the prospects for establishing a film cluster in the Far East? What can be done to encourage production companies to make films in the region? What forms of support are likely to be most effective with regard to the development of the film industry?
