This partner project of the NMG and Fedor Bondarchuk is aimed to train young professionals
The National Media Group, director Fedor Bondarchuk, producers of the Vodorod Film Company Mikhail Vrubel and Andrey Andryushchenko have announced establishment of School of Cinema and Television “Industriya”. The dedicated academy will join leaders of the Russian cinema industry to educate a new generation of creative professionals.
Within the advanced vocational education, students of the school will complete two-year programs in screenwriting and camerawork, as well as in film direction. The main distinguishing feature of “Industriya” compared to other cinema schools is the education system that is unique for Russia: best cinema industry professionals will carry out practical classes where they will share their knowledge and experience with students. After completion of the courses, graduates will do a broad onsite training program.
Olga Paskina, NMG Director General: “This school is a unique site for experience exchange that will gather together people 'from the industry' – producers, directors and screenwriters – and people 'for the industry' – young professionals wishing to enter the world of cinema and television. The NMG is actively developing the content area. It is obvious that the industry would have no growth prospects without new young professionals. We firmly believe in the potential of this educational project and intend to participate in its implementation as a partner.”
Fedor Bondarchuk, Art Pictures Studio: “The key task of school 'Industriya' is to provide the Russian cinema with what it lacks most: highly competent young specialists who will make achievements of the Russian filmmaking not just one-time cases, but will turn them into a sustainable progress toward a well-aligned system.”
Mikhail Vrubel, Vodorod: “Our educational program is composed of modules specially designed for 'Industriya' by leading screenwriters, directors and camera operators. This is a very agile system meeting actual interests and needs of the modern cinema and TV industries as much as possible. After the start of the studies, students will have regular onsite trainings at the operating film studios as a specialist's level finally depends on practice and experience.”
The official presentation of cinema school “Industriya” will take place on June 13, 2017 within 28th Open Russian Film Festival “Kinotavr” in Sochi.
