MOSCOW, March 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Vladimir Malyshev, the rector of the Russian State University of Cinematography named after Sergei Gerasimov (VGIK), has suggested opening the institution’s subsidiary in Crimea, the University’s press service told Itar-Tass on Monday, noting that Russian Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky had approved the initiative.
The University already has subsidiaries in Rostov-on-Don, southern Russia; Irkutsk, the Siberia; Sergiev Posad near Moscow and Russia’s westernmost Kaliningrad region.
The University’s rector stressed the need to develop the Yalta film studios and the Yalta film festival.
The Russian State Institute of Cinematography was founded in 1919. It was transformed into a university in 2008. Most contemporary Russian filmmakers are graduates of this University, which is one of the world’s leading institutions to train professional film-makers.
Russian filmmakers, operators, script writers, actors and painters who graduate from the Russian State University of Cinematography work in more than 80 countries.
