In ad­di­tion, funds from the state bud­get will be al­lo­cated this year for the pro­duc­tion of 20 doc­u­men­tary, pop­u­lar sci­ence, ed­u­ca­tional-method­olog­i­cal films, al­manacs, news­reels, and 25 in 2019, while 30 an­nu­ally from 2020. The an­i­ma­tion in­dus­try will not be left aside ei­ther: this year the gov­ern­ment plans to fi­nance the pro­duc­tion of 15 car­toons, and 50 start­ing from 2022 an­nu­ally.

To date, three stan­dard de­signs for cin­e­mas: sum­mer, as well as a one-story and two-story build­ings have al­ready been ap­proved. The lat­ter two types are to have two halls, each of which de­signed for about 50 seats.

“Cur­rently we are study­ing as to what equip­ment th­ese cin­e­mas should be out­fit­ted with. Ob­vi­ously, it will meet the re­quire­ments of the times. To or­ga­nize the ac­tiv­ity of the cin­e­mas, a spe­cial rental cen­ter will be set up to pro­vide them with both na­tional and world pre­mieres. For this it will re­ceive a small in­ter­est from the own­ers of the fa­cil­i­ties,” said the chief of the tech­ni­cal de­part­ment at the Uzbekkino Agency Ba­hodir Muhame­dov.

At the same time, ac­cord­ing to him, the num­ber of cin­e­mas can sig­nif­i­cantly in­crease, as is­sues re­lated to fund­ing the project are be­ing solved. The spe­cial­ist added that the main donor will be the Na­tional Bank of Uzbek­istan, which will is­sue pref­er­en­tial loans to en­trepreneurs will­ing to be­gin con­struc­tion of th­ese fa­cil­i­ties.

“Loans will be granted at the 7% pref­er­en­tial in­ter­est rate. The busi­nessper­son who is as­signed the funds in the bank will build the fa­cil­ity in ac­cor­dance with one of the stan­dard de­signs and equip it in line with ap­proved stan­dards. In the fu­ture, there will be an in­te­grated ticket sys­tem, ticket sales via the in­ter­net and mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tions,” Muhame­dov pointed out.

Worth re­call­ing that the Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan ap­proved last Au­gust a num­ber of mea­sures to sup­port and fur­ther de­velop the na­tional cin­e­matog­ra­phy, in­clud­ing the pa­ram­e­ters of the state or­der in the field for the com­ing years. Thus, for ex­am­ple, it is planned to fund 20 full-length mo­tion pic­tures in 2018, and 30 such films an­nu­ally start­ing from 2020.
