September 12, 1941 is a significant day for Kazakh cinema. This is the date when Almaty Film Studio was established, nowadays known as the legendary KazakhFilm Studio named after Shaken Aymanov. Therefore this day can be considered as the day Kazakh cinema.
Today Kazakh cinema is going upward. Adopting new Law ‘”On cinema”, establishing Centre for Support of National Cinema, raising Kazakhstan Film Festivals to a brand-new level, and winning high awards at world cinema forums - all prove unlimited high potential of our cinema!
I wish all filmmakers to win even higher awards, to achieve even greater recognition and, most importantly, to continue to create and serve the art that gives the world excitement and amazing impressions! After all, each of your heroes is us!
Acting Chairman of the Board of the State Center for Support of National Cinema Gulnara Sarsenova
