MOSCOW, March 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian animators appealed to Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky asking him to introduce a quota for national cartoons on Russian TV, the Russian Culture Ministry’s press service told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
Medinsky met with directors and producers in the olden Russian city of Suzdal, one of the cities in Russia’s Golden Ring sights, where the Open Festival of Animation Movies is under way.
The animators complained that Russian audiences had no access to lots of Russian movies primarily short-reel ones. Only full-length cartoons are interesting for providers who buy them for cinemas, while animation industry movies on TV are not subject to regulations.
“The animation representatives applied to the minister asking him to introduce a quota above 5% for screening animation films on TV,” the press service said.
“In the shortest term the proposals will take shape and be submitted to the ministry,” it said.
