Russian Film Days in Jordan are being held with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the

Russian Federation and in collaboration with the Russian Film Festival.

Olga Lyubimova, Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation says: “More than half a

century of diplomatic relations between Russia and Jordan have made it possible even today to

strengthen our cultural interaction and implement promising new projects. Holding Russian

Film Days in Jordan is intended to be an important step in this direction. I am sure that

modern Russian films will be highly appreciated by the Jordanian audience.”

Inna Shalyto, CEO of ROSKINO says: “Such events are an important tool for studying the

market and audience preferences. Representatives of Jordan and other Middle East countries

have shown strong interest in Russian film projects. The Russian film industry’s participation

in the Middle East film markets indicated the potential for increasing the Russian presence in

the cinematic landscape of the region and for developing joint projects with local players.”
