Mosfilm up to speed with state-of-the-art pavilion

Facility intended for both TV, film production

MOSCOW — Showing first fruits of ongoing reforms, Russia’s premier studio Mosfilm unveiled a state of the art restored pavilion facility March 26.

Facilities at the studio’s pavilion No. 5, intended for both TV and feature production, include computer lighting and sound recording systems which should speed up production by up to 5 times, according to Mosfilm president Vladimir Dostal.

“When we started thinking about this reconstruction, production at Mosfilm was virtually stalled,” Dostal said. “But all the same we knew that, in due course, we would return to the work which Mosfilm has been involved in for more than 70 years.”‘

Joining Dostal at the opening ceremony was Armando Grottezi, president of International Movie Technics, Mosfilm’s partners in the reconstruction.

The Italian Russian joint venture, originally titled Italian Mosfilm Technica, has been running an equipment leasing deal at the studio since 1993.

Investment from the Russian side comes partly as an advance on Mosfilm’s predicted privatization agreement with the Moscow City Government, likely to be ratified officially at the end of May.
